I would say otherwise. Tons of room for manoeuvre there. What is 'it's successor' - one camera can be a successor to two models, and they will not be putting out a product with merely better specs but one that has evolved into new territory. No 'merely better specs' an mean 'different specs' and 'new territory' can mean downmarket as well as up. I can't see that statement invalidates what I think will heppen at all. After all, I said the new camera would be called the 7DII, I thought it would have better specs (not much better) and I thought it would go into new territory.

Interpret it any way you want. I think you're broadly stretching it to fit your own vision of what Canon is planning. I thought his statement was pretty unequivocal And he separately (and very clearly) stated that a separate 60D successor was forthcoming.
