The 7D line didn't exist when the 10D-50D came out. But because of the existence of the 7D, they had to change the direction of the xxD line a little to clearly differentiate the 60D from the 7D. In fact, that's the problem: if they make the 70D too good, why would anyone buy a 7D MKII?

And if they make the 7DMK2 too good how will that affect 6D sales?

No.

Yes I know there is the sensor size difference but if Canon released a 7D2 with a high enough pixel count and low light response surely that would screw 6D sales.

No it wont. As is MP count is very close between 6D and 7D. MP count is exactly the same between D600 and D3200, it means nothing and does not affect their positioning the slightest (in fact 1DX has the same MP could as 550D and D4 has 33% less MP than D3200, have you seen anyone worried?)

Low light response is directly related to sensor size, 6D's QE is about 50%, 7D2 at best will achieve 55%, its low light will continue to be 2.5 times worse than 6D.

Bit of a rock/hard place conundrum for the Canon marketeers. I bet the tech guys have loads of great stuff they cannot release because of the marketeers.

And let Panasonic and Sony and Nikon bring them out to the market first?
