z-50p/pz-50p manual needed

Greets everyone.... Unsure if I should have posted this in the Marketplace area and I did not see a special section for manuals.

Trying to track down a user manual for the Pentax Z-50p (Australia)/PZ-50p (rest of the world).

Have been unable to locate my own copy and have not been able to find one on the internet. Funnily enough I got all the other models in the same product range except the 50.

If someone is able to point me toward an electronic copy on th web / has one and wouldn't mind me borrowing to digitize it / has one but no longer have the camera and wish to sell it would be fantasic.

Interesting, is not in the Pentax manuals line neither in the US or the UK.

Found one here:
Download Instructions Manuals: Pentax-Z50P (Film cameras)
in Japanese though
maybe the camera was sold under a different name elsewhere?

titrisol: It really is an odd model. I believe the model number I have is correct but it would appear that there were maybe only sold in a cold of countries. Not been able to nail down which ones....

Talking to the guys at Kayell here in Brisbane, they said they get somesecond hand ones through every so often but pretty far between. I don't actually recall ever seeing anyone else with this particular model camera or in a second hand shop/pawn brokers.

I had run into a couple of japanese manuals already. This is the first in PDF though for me. So maybe I will be able to run it through a translator and then fix it up a bit. But that's probably going to be pretty ugly.

If I can get my hands on an english one, the first priority will be to digitize it and upload it to this site I think. As well as make several backups and maybe an extra photocopy just to be safe.

I tried to search for the PZ-50/Z-50 but the links always ends with the newer MZ-50/ZX-50.

This model is very rare and US is known as PZ series while rest of world is Z-series. I am in Singapore and I have not come across the Z-50 but I have the Z-20 ands the Z-1 SE.

Will try to help search and post if I do find anything.
