Z-10/PZ10 dental version focussing screen?

Recently, I aquired a working Z10 film camera body in a fleabay set of old Pentax AF cameras. The Z-10 works, but is not my favourite type of camera body.


It has a very special focussing screen: instead of the matte field with the AF rectangle in the middle, it has vertical and horizontal golden section markings plus a rectangle in the bottom right corner. Actually, a quite cool screen!

Has anyone seen this screen before? Mind you, the screens in Z-10 are not supposed to be exchanged by the user.

But could it possibly be from the dental macro set that Pentax sold under the name of Pentax M.D. Image II Set (basically a Z10, a 100m FA Macro lens and a AF 140 C ring flash in a case)?

Any help is highly appreciated!
