Re: 6D as a 7D upgrade? Doubtful

Certainly you are entitled to your view, but I think the spec of the 70D says more likely 'no 7DII' than 'very high end 7DII'.

Really? So are you proposing Canon has waited 4 years to release the 7D mark II, and (it seems) gave it the same frame rate and focus system as the original 7D. And they called it the 70D.

In my opinion, the 70D specs do nothing to indicate there won't be a 7D mark II. I believe there will be a true 7D mark II, and it will need a higher frame rate than the 7D / 70D, and a more advanced focus system than the 7D / 70D. And it will undoubtedly have other features to differentiate it from the 70D, most likely better weather sealing, dual card slots, dual options for every control button, larger buffer, etc – just like the 7D had over the 60D.
