Request for K-5 owners: User Manual

I believe that Pentax includes User Manual in PDF format in one of CDs you get with the camera.

Could any early K-5 owner upload K-5 user manual somewhere?

There has never been any Pentax Operating Manual in pdf format provided on any CD in all of the Pentax DSLRs that I have purchased to date. What comes in the K-5 and K-r packaging is a printed hard copy of the camera Operating Manual only. On the CD provided is the installer for Digital Camera Utility 4. Wait for Pentax to provide the pdf manual at a later date, alternatively why not just order the K-5.

The K-R manual is out today on the Pentax Japan website

If you can wait a bit, I think the K-5 manual should be out as well, very soon

Meanwhile ...
This is the most that's available just now:

PENTAX K-5 The flagship model of PENTAX K digital SLR camera series, offering high-quality images and user-friendly operation to satisfy the demands of advanced amateurs

As there are few differences apart from the main ones of sensor size and performance, I recommend studying the K-7 Manual, it will get you a long way in until you get the K-5 version:
