Selling two different products into one space is splitting the market.

That were true if the market weren't split already - but someone who is in the target audience for the 6D isn't in the target audience for the 7DII and visa verso, those cameras are too different to be competing with each other - so your whole argument has no merit whatsoever.

I think there is a considerable overlap between the two. Both are general purpose high end enthusiast DSLR's. Yes, there is a group that would only buy one, but in the middle there is a bigger group for whom they are both attractive offers, with a different emphasis. Canon's range has never included alternatives at each price point - they decide on the emphasis (speed, video specs, resolution, FF, etc) at each point and offer one model. If you need something different, you go up or down, not across.

Sorry Bob, but you're incorrect.  The 7D is the top end crop sensor cam for speed & action.  6D is an entry-level FF camera.  No way would I consider replacing my 7D with a 6D.  If you were right we'd see people here dumping their 7D in favor of the 6D.  I don't see that happening.  Four years after the release, the 7D is still going strong.
