No problem! I also have a home color printer; but printing 300 pages, for the cost of the ink (about $35 for all cartridges); I'd prefer to see what Staples will charge. They also will punch the holes to fit in my binder. I also have a 3 hole heavy duty paper punch, but to sit here and punch about 4-5 pages at a time..............................

Of course if my Staples charges too much for me, then I'll do it myself.

I have a Color Laser printer at home that I got on sale for cheap, should be able to get about 20,000 pages out of the toners, so not too worried. I'll split the load between that and work. Now to go purchase that .pdf and get that going!

I called Staples, and for B&W, it will be around $30. In color, it will be around $120!! Any pages that I would absolutely need in color, I will do on my printer.

Wow... $120, no thanks! LOL Then again, I do have a Surface Pro 3 I use for my PS and Lightroom. I have it on there so it's actually easy to read and reference. Maybe I'll pass on printing it up.

As I mentioned, it's only around $30 in B&W, for around 300 pages! Any pages I would absolutely need in color, I can then print myself.

I believe that the K3 user manuals appear skimpy, because the print matter is smaller. It seems as though 2 pages are combined into one.

Yes, the K-3 manual has virtually same material as the K-5 manual, but printed with a smaller font size.

There was an e-book published by someone, I think for the k-3..............

Here you go: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/24-photographic-equipment-sale/295303-sal...tax-dslrs.html

Have not read it or even looked so no idea how good it will be.

If you have specific questions feel free to ask, answers are usually quite quick in appearing.
I have looked every where for a user's guide to the K3 II. I am new to the forum, just bought a K3 II (coming from an old Pentax film era totally manual camera). Is the e-book going to be much more informative than the operating manual?

yes it is helpful. I haven't referred to it more than once since I read the whole thing, but it did help explain things that the owners manual did not.

I don't think there is anything in the e-book that is not in the manual. However, the manual does not always of a good job of explaining things. The e-book does that much better.

Thanks, I got the e-book. I think it will help. I came from an old Pentax ME Super, to a point and shoot, and have just got a K3 II. I have a lot of catching up to do on dials, knobs and settings - but I'll still have my manual mode.

I keep a copy of the K-3 e-book on my tablet - solves the need for a printed copy (for me)....
