K-x manuals, brochures, documentation?

Has anyone found any links to official Pentax manuals and sales literature (brochures etc) for the K-x? I'm keen to do some reading about the camera.

There is nothing on Pentax Japan or Pentax USA sites yet, aside from the press release, even though the camera is retailing already.

Post any links here pls!

Almost none of these are in English, so I don't know how useful they'll be to you:

Japanese:
Press release (English) - PENTAX K-x A High-Performance Entry-Class Digital SLR Camera, Packaging Movie Recording, High-Speed Continuous Shooting and User-Friendly Operation in Compact, Lightweight Body
Brochure - http://www.pentax.jp/japan/imaging/catalog/pdf/k-x.pdf

German:
datasheet - http://www.pentax.co.uk/en/media/272400b5a1d39fd2addd0ff67ba8d457/Datenblatt.pdf
spec comparison - http://www.pentax.co.uk/en/media/8e887af20ddf64de252b3dfcb467eeac/Funktionsvergleich.pdf

French:

Thanks knoxploration, esp for the Japanese brochure.

I guess I'll just have to wait a little while for the English version of the brochure, and the manual, to become available.

Yep, given that even the Japanese-language manual isn't available yet, I'd not expect much information to be available elsewhere. Once Pentax HQ offers an English-language manual, the rest will probably fall into place pretty quickly.

I've only seen PDF's of the spec sheet and comparison table from Pentax Germany, as per the links provided above by knoxploration.

Anyone know if there is Ev compensation while in M mode? (i.e. hyper manual). The spec lists don't say as much. Curious.

Bump.

I have a paper manual in my hands now, but still don't see any electronic manuals or brochures available in English anywhere.
