I got my K5 for a decade now and close to 40'000 shutter releases without failing me once. Frankly its a bomb proof body, even though I use my kit often in rain, snow and nasty conditions of all sorts, primarily with the equally solid 300 f4, really a perfect kit for outdoor stuff. Only gripe is the AF performance for BIF, recently tried a EM 1 mark 3 with the oly 300f4 and will go down that route because its in a different league really... But for slow stuff Pentax is still good and will last you a lifetime :)

SMC Pentax-DA* 300mm F4 ED [IF] SDM Reviews - DA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

It's a great lens, if only the autofocus would be quicker. If only Pentax could give us a firmware update to avoid the autofocus go always towards the minimal focal length rather than vers infinite whenever it looses focus with BIF, it would make it hunt shorter. But hey, its sharp and weather sealed, took it out for hours on end in the rain with my K5 and never had any issues, it is a though cookie :)
