The rumor is a 4FPS camera with a 36MP Sony Exmor FX sensor using the D7000 pixel design. I hope Canon will compete well with the 5D3, 'cause I can't afford to switch, I like my lenses, and that sensor is pretty much exactly what the doctor ordered (along with Nikon's famous AF).

That's quite a jump in MP - won't that stretch the glass in use whether it's the (rumoured) Nikon or a new Canon?

If it does it will be interesting to see where things go next, the MP will finally be over

More pixels will always resolve more detail, but the Law of Diminsihing returns will affect different lenses differently.

Getting right to the point, a FF version of the 7D sensor would be 46 MP. So, however well FF lenses fare on the 7D is how well they'd fare on a 46 MP FF sensor.
