From CanonRumors:

A Big Megapixel Discussion

Canon is apparently quite motivated to make industry leading sensors again, as we should see some of that in the EOS 7D Mark II and perhaps even the 70D in the summer.

I talked with a Canon distributor at a non-photographic event abroad last week who told me a couple of surprising things. I have no idea whether he has any 'real' information, but he claimed that the 70D (or whatever the name will be) would be announced in the next few days (same old 18MP APS-C sensor, slightly upgraded body over the 60D); and a replacement for the 7D in October (new APS-H sensor(!), pro-body smaller than the 1DX). I have no idea if he's really in the know, but he sure came off that way, so thought I'd pass it along

He had no knowledge of any large mega-pixel cameras in the foreseeable future, though.
