You're missing the point. The 7D will also be upgraded, as was the 60D, and when it is it will again move further ahead. Canon is not about to let the 7D fade away to be replaced by the 70D, nice as it is. Even though it's 4 years old the 7D still has advantages that are desired by action and even some semi pro and pro shooters, and still have not been matched by 70D.

It will be much easier to put a newer sensor in the 7D than to get 8 or more likely 10FPS and double the shot buffer out of the 70D.
