You'd have to print it page by page, I'm afraid, but that shouldn't be too bad!

Thanks for the review.

The review recommends using Vibrant setting for Custom Image Finishing Tone (CIFT). Does anybody know why? In which situations would that be fine? For my taste Vibrant produces unbearably wrong colors (oversaturated blues). I set it to Natural now. Bright looks fine too.

In Workthrough section it is recommended this: "make sure you push in the lens release button near the mount while putting the lens on. If you don't do this, both the mount and the lens will be subjected to unnecessary wear."

The Pentax lens manual (page 12) specifically advises against this: "Memo: Do not hold down the lens unlock button while mounting the lens, otherwise the lens will not be properly mounted"

You can let go of it at the last moment, but it's still a good idea to keep it pressed down until you're close to the locked position. If you don't do this properly though, they are right- it might not lock at all.

yeh, I guess it is just to make sure the lock is secure. But I was not 100% sure that's the only reason, so I prefer to do it the safe way (i e. manufacture recommended way)
