Missing print-version of the full Instruction Manual?

Your 7DII comes with a handy little 180p print-version of the Basic Instruction Manual, but the in-deep 550p full Instruction Manual is only included in pdf on the supplied CDROM. If you like me like to have your advanced manual in print too, EOS Magazine offers printed manuals for various cameras including a two volumes spiral bound A5 print of the full Instruction Manual for EOS 7D Mark II. It's not "camerabag compatible" like the little compact Basic Instruction Manual that came with your camera, but it's nice enough for a little home-studying...

If on the other hand you don't mind ebooks, but miss some more popular type of introduction to your new advanced EOS 7D Mark II, Canon 7D Mark II Experience looks like an interesting choice. Canon 7D Mark II Experience by Douglas Klostermann is available in Kindle format om Amazon, or in pdf or epub format from authors homepage. The book currently doesn't seem to be available in a print-version.
