Canon traditionally announce their crop-sensor models (7D, 60D) around August/September.

Well, Canon has traditionally replaced the xxD series in 12-24 months; the 60D is now ~2.5 years old.
Also, traditionally Canon has replaced the xD camara in 2-3 years - and the 7D is now ~3.5 years old.

So, per Canon's traditions, both the 60D and 7D should have been replaced by now.

We are in a different economic environment right now. When the economy is booming and cameras are flying off the shelves, companies like Canon and Nikon can afford the R&D and tooling costs to introduce new cameras more often. Today, it is different, it's already become evident that historical replacement cycles have no bearing.
