It's not exactly as if we currently have lousy cameras desperately in need of improvements. On the contrary, our cameras--including Nikon, Olympus, Sony, and yes, Canon--are pretty amazing. People complain about the "crippled" 6D but "crippled" compared to what? Are you saying that all cameras at all levels should have the specs of the top-of-the line model? What's wrong with the 60D that so desperately needs upgrading? Even the ancient 7D still is amazing. You should go to Thom Hogan's web site ( www.bythom.com ) and read his excellent articles titled "the Last Camera Syndrome."

That said, would I buy a "70D"? Probably not because I have a T2i and a 7D, but I'd check it out. Would I buy a 7D2? That seems quite likely. I dunno, I'm not finding myself limited by my cameras.

Its been discussed before - this forum often is more for tech/gear heads than photographers. The cameras we have are more than we need for good photography. But we are lulled into having the latest and greatest tech because - it's there! Canon needs us to keep buying new cameras, "upgrading", etc. That's capitalism.

Having said that - while I think the 60D is all the camera I need, I am not immune to gear lust. At this point the 60D is the best camera Canon makes that has an articulating screen (which I find essential for the type of work I do.) I love it's image quality, size, weight, screen and feature set, especially with Magic Lantern. So, I don't lust for any better camera, it doesn't exist.
