Hi Pentaxian friends.

At the time of this post, it was impossible to log on to the Pentax site as it was too busy. Try here soon: http://www.pentaximaging.com/support/manuals-and-literature/ then follow the prompts to downloads for Pentax DSLR K-7.

I had a better response for downloadingfrom the Pentax Japan Site. Try it here: http://www.pentax.jp/english/support/digital/k-7_s.html
