K-1 user manual availability?

There are a number of details I want to find about the K-1 that will not likely be found without the user manual. Any idea on when it will be posted to the Ricoh site? After CP+ or not until it starts shipping?

It probably won't be up until after CP+ at the end of the week. Maybe not even that soon.

You probably will have to wait until the camera actually starts shipping.

Do you have a link by any chance? I could try to mangle it with google translate.

I just had a horrible thought;
What if you got a annual written in 'chinglish' and mangled it in Google Translate.
Would it make sense? or would it end up being REALLY unreadable?

Judging by some of Pentax's past manuals, it might be an improvement.

That's one thing not to thank Ricoh for - they used to be really good
