Sony F717

Not exactly what you want but Sony had a camera about 10 years ago, the F717, with built in IR lights and an IR filter that could be flipped up.

You could use these lights to take a conventional IR shot in darkness but also to focus in pitch blackness.  In the latter case you could then take a flash shot to capture the actual picture - assuming you didn't want to a completely black image!  It wasn't very useful in practice but I did get a couple of very low light IR shots of wildlife.

It also had an absolutely terrible EVF!
