Here it is in the lens DB:
Pentax Lens Review and Specification Database - 50mm F2

I have a copy, what would you like to know? I'm thinking about selling my copy, since I'll be getting another prime soon.

Boy am I tired. I misread your post. I think you're thinking about this one:

No one normally refers to the lens by that exact name. Usually it's just M50/2, or something to that effect - anything to convery that it is an "M" series lens (Pentax-M), 50mm, and has a maximum aperture of f/2. It is actually possibly one of most common lenses in the entire world (!), as it was the kit lens for the K1000 for years. There is absolutely no shortage of information on the lens, but indeed, a search on that exact spelling of the name probably won't hit much.
