Why do companies do that?

I don't understand why a company would make a poor manual for a good product, but Olympus is certainly not alone. The E-M5 is a complex instrument and deserves to be explained better. Most obviously, it needs a manual that is designed for the way it is delivered.

The manual is obviously designed for low-cost printing. It fits well into a small format and it is black and white only. Content is linked by printed page numbers. AND YET THEY DON'T PRINT IT!

I wouldn't mind a PDF manual if it was designed for PDF--take advantage of color, include hyperlinks instead of page number references, add a complete table of contents, etc.
