i have just recieved my new K-5 body,taken my first photo to test,
checked my shutter count via; photo me & myshuttercount.com.
The shutter count is 1,
so do pentax not check camera bodies before leaving the factory anymore?

Not all get tested, too many coming out of the factory. All testing is done by random sampling otherwise cost and time is way too high. It is the same with any manufacturing plant, service or anything else.

Not quite, although random sampling is he norm, in some cases the cost of failure is considered too high.
With of the motorsport we've done fuel for, every keg of race fuel has been tested before it leaves the refinery. Any that do not meet the FIA regulations don't leave. Despite this any kegs being used on raceday were apparently tested again...

My K-5 was zero for the shutter count. Either they reset it or test random samples. A few years ago with the K20D people used to complain that the count wasn't zero - they can't win.
