Update:Reader DePaula (thanks!) was so kind to translate the EOS 7D part. Here is the translation:

DKW: As for the readers of DigiKame Watch, there are many who are waiting for the EOS 7D’s sucessor. Up through the release of last year’s major firmware update, there were many who felt that a new model with even better specs would be released shortly…

MM: Yes, they would be correct. For us, it’s about looking at what the camera has the potential to be and then adding that to what it can currently do. I do think the current model is still very attractive to buyers. And while we are, of course, developing its successor, it’ll be one that incorporates a certain number of innovative technologies. We will not be putting out a product with merely better specs, but one that has evolved into new territory. But then again, we’re not talking about something a long time from now either.

I like that translation! I take it to mean 30Mp, low noise, AF at f8 (from 1Dx), 12fps. That is a start.  New territory? Have to think about that. "Not a long time from now", next month?
