Maybe the 7D will be on an extra-long cycle too, although we can always hope the 7DII and 70D will come out at the same time.

Yes, I've been wondering about that too.

It seems likely that the 70D (if there is one - we don't actually know) will be a significant upgrade to the 60D, and it's been rumoured that it may see a return to a 50D-style body. And surely by now Canon has a superior sensor for us. Add all that together and you have a body which could appeal to 7D owners who are itching to upgrade before the summer - thus stealing customers from the 7DII.

Your best customers are your existing customers, and your best 7DII customers are 7D owners. The surest way for Canon to keep 7D customers on the hook is to announce the 7DII, even if availability is a little way off.

So that's my best guess - 70D with almost immediate availability, 7DII available in 3/4/5 months but both announced next Friday.
