Personally I think there will not be both a 70D and 7DII, they will reunify the line. The new camera will most likely be called the 7DIII and will be not a huge upgrade from the present, but sell around the $1200 price point instead of the $1800. There's only so much money kicking around at $2k per camera, doesn't make sense having two cameras in that price range.

Did you read the earlier comments from Canon's VP? Not at all consistent with your speculation. He pretty clearly indicated (as clearly as anyone from Canon is likely to be) that there will be successors to both, with the 7D stretching into some pretty new space. We'll see what that translates to, but he was pretty forthright on this and I suspect you're pretty off base. Time will tell.

Could you let me have a link. Generally when I see these VP statements, they are ambiguous marketing speak, designed to be read as you want to read it, even after translation from the Japanese. There are people waiting around for cameras all over these forums on the basis of these statements. Over Nikonwards, they think they've been promised a D400 and on the Olympus forums they've come to the conclusion that a VP has committed to a E-7.
