Since we seem to be compiling an index here, might as well have the Pentax Global site, too:

you can tack all the references you want, but the main reason for the post, and more importantly the one in the film camera forum, is that the official pentax site in japan does not carry a lot of older manuals.,

Someone I assume in pentax canada scanned as many old film manuals as possible and posted them.

By old I mean all the way back to the spotmatics

The Pentax USA site (Manuals and Literature - Official PENTAX Imaging Web Site) has all models back to the H1, so while the Pentax Canada resource is good, it is not unique.

What I would suggest is that a sticky be developed that provides a list of online documentation resources for cameras, lenses, and accessories. While a certain manual may be available one place, a better or more readable copy may be found somewhere else.
