I think that mirrorless market is overcrowded and Pentax won't make such camera.
Maybe something like X100/X1/DP1-2 with fast zoom lens and full weather-proof...
It could be interesting.

This Model is only one......and not the "ONE"
First one is in range of P&S.
Small Sensor...

This is the common rumor. The first ILC will use a small P&S sensor. One would assume it will compete with cameras like the Canon G-12. Rumor now has it being announced in May.

The second ICL camera is rumorred to have an APC-S sensor in it. Nothing much else is know. It was orginally was going to be released in late 2011 but then again the small sensor ICL was going to be released in the pring and now it is goign to be a summer release. So I would guess the APC-S model will slip to early 2012.

Still not much in way of solid rumors on either camera.

I don't really understand this train of thought. The mirrorless market is far less crowded than the DSLR market, yet Pentax obviously competes there. If you believe projections by Samsung and Olympus (as well others), the mirrorless market share will surpass the DSLR market within 5 years. It would seem logical that Pentax should grab their piece of that.

The Canon Rumors Admin pretty much summed up my thoughts two weeks ago with this:

QuoteQuote:
From my personal experience and what I’ve seen, 80% of the people I know with mirrorless cameras do not own SLRs. That’s a lot of customers Canon does not have. If you fear you’re going to have your DSLR sales cannibalized by mirrorless cameras, just make sure it’s you cannibalizing them.

I've heard from a local storeowner that Pentax are pretty keen to get this EVIL camera out by June/July this year.
They are in the market for competition with the X100.

that tells me it will be a much cooler cam than the other evils then, they have been given a brief respite due to the x100 production issues
