As the 7d outdid the D300, Canon will try to outdo the D7100. And within 100$ of it. Count on it.

It all depends on what you mean by 'outdid'. The 7D didn't 'outdo' the D300 on anything but pixel count. In fact in most ways it was behind, but it sold much better. Looks like we're going to see the same with the D600 and 6D. My best bet is that we'll see something very close to the current 7D, updated and upgraded but not so much, 3.2" LCD, maybe new version of 45 point AF, but at the D7100 price point, and it will probably sell better than the D7100. Probably no 70D, for the reasons you say.

I've seen you make this claim many times now. I'm puzzled. Did you have a bad experience with a 7D? I can't understand why you insist on making such an obviously false claim as this over and over again. The D300 is a fine camera, but the 7D is better in every respect, except number of AF points, and there's no evidence that it actually performs any better as a result of having more points.
