More or less certain, yes:

Two different Canon invitations to press events. As I said in another post, we have no idea what will be announced (more Cinema EOS lenses, who knows?) but for the sake of a few days, I'd wait.

What if it could be the 7DII announcement given that Canon sometimes takes six months to actually start delivery? The 7D sales must have started to really taper off by now and Canon needs to stop the undecided from buying a D7100. Canon can discount the 7D and move warehoused 7D  product while finishing the build on the 7DII for a release date in October. Oh such fools are we, playing the what-if waiting game..
