Since the bit of written info says "power zoom" I would think it is for a new P&S model or super zoom cross over camera. (if it exists at all)

I think the verbiage "power Zoom" is referring to the level of magnification of the lens. With out doubt Pentax has a few hidden prototypes for a mirrorless and FF body somewhere. This lens is an example of some leg work if they chose to enter a market segment. My bet is that it is for FF.

60 degrees at wide angle --> APS-C lens, a FF would have more coverage (a 28mm covers 75)

I can't find the OP, but I'm not sure if that one had a link to the optical formula. This was one does! Still just paper, though, not a reality yet. :-(
