Pentax K5 lens release button: is a repair worth it?

Thinking that I was one of the lucky few destined to never face the problem of the lens release button going AWOL, I discovered today that it was no longer there.

Two questions arise:

(1) Is a repair costing 100+ EUR worth it for a camera that can be had used for 250-300 EUR?

(2) Is this a recurrent problem, i.e., did the button re-disappear on those who sent their K5 in for repair?
