Potential K30 for Nikon User.....questions/thoughts

...about 2.5 years ago I made the jump from Oly to Nikon.  Logic was simple, Nikon was one of the big players and seemed committed to APS-C....Pentax's future seemed questionable.

....so, not that I want to bin my Nikon's, but I really like the K30....IQ and the weatherproofing would be perfect for my trips to Cuba, but I really have two nagging questions:

- Is Pentax as tenuous as Olympus was/is to the DSLR market ?

- Is there a decent zoom with a reach of 300mm for an APS-C Pentax, even a 3rd party....does not have to be fast as its for outside/daylight.

Advice and thoughts from seasoned Pentax users much appreciated !
