I personally don't see Canon going this route. I think the 7D II will be be an APS-C camera and positioned to go against the Nikon D400 (whenever it is released) and cost somewhere between $1,699 and $2K.

I'd pay up $2700 if they got the rumored newer sensors, processors, 10fps and the improved AF system akin to a mini 1DX.......

That would be for a crop sensor.  The same specs (and the same pixel density) with a full-frame sensor mean doubling or more that amount.

If it's above that I'd have to consider the 5DIII more carefully..........

To me, they're totally different.  Neither is a replacement for the other.

Personally, I'd like a 7DII with all the goodies (including a low read noise sensor) for $1,999 and a 5DIIIn with nothing changed except for a low read noise sensor for $2,999 (street, after 3-9 months).  I'd buy them both.
