Anybody got a Sony Alph 300 DSLR??

I've just bought one, and ferreting through the boxes, I can't find any trace of a manual, or a software Disk.
Have these just been omitted when the shop put the camera back in the box?
Or is it so simple to operate that no instructions are necessary:-) ?

Here you go click here Manuls & Software.

Looks like they forgot to put them back in the box.

Thanks mate!
To the rescue again!!
Just got home after buying it, and wanted to have a play, but as soon as the shop had closed, I noticed the manual missing!
Now I can explore a little without danger of doing damage!! :-)

You should have a software disk and manual

Seems "" also don't think the manual is necessary!!
Hi Harry, well, I've gone and done it!
I think that in the turmoil that was the sales counter, they must have forgotten to put back the manual and disk when they packed it up, but typical of me, I didn't find out till the shop had shut!
Anyway, thanks to MCE25K, I can view the online PDF version till I pick mine up from the shop!
Still trying to convince myself that I deserve this extravigance, pretending that my "cold weather payment has subsidised it. lol
