The 7D is the top end crop sensor cam for speed & action.

That is a matter of fact, but that doesn't mean that it will always be so.

It will always be so, it's the camera concept behind a 7D type camera.

6D is an entry-level FF camera.

That also is a matter of fact, but doesn't impinge one way or another on what I said.

No way would I consider replacing my 7D with a 6D.

That is your preference, to which you have every right, but there is no law that says that Canon has to cater for your personal preference.

They will cater to markets, and none of the current cameras caters for the segment that the 7D does - especially not an entry level, sluggish, sedate 6D!

If you were right we'd see people here dumping their 7D in favor of the 6D. I don't see that happening.

Have you looked? What evidence have you or not that people have moved from 7D to 6D or thought of a 7D but went 6D instead?

I know quite a lot of photographers which have either - a few have both but not a single one exchanged the 7D for the 6D! Face it, a 6D can not in any way replace the 7D, not today, not tomorrow, not ever!

Four years after the release, the 7D is still going strong.

Not so much, stronger than its nearest competitor, the D300s, but that's not saying a great deal. If the market was so vibrant, one would have expected Canon to replace it after 3 years, like they usually do with their top end cameras.

There is no set interval for top of the line DSLR - and there was this little earth quake which has set back Canon by quite a bit.

There has to be some reason Canon thought it worth replacing all those models and not the 7D.

You only need to look at sales figures - I can tell you that the 7D still sells remarkably well - as I indirectly can judge the figures for the german speaking market as the book on the 7D still comprehensively outsells the ones for the 60D, 550D, 600D, 650D together.
