No 7DII, so probably no D400.

In the meantime, little by little, people migrate to FF with higher margins for both Canon and Nikon, and the opportunity to sell a shed load of L glass.

Do you have any data to back that? At any given price point, FF will be more costly and yield lower margins

Yes - that is why you do not see full frame cameras with comparable specs to an APS-C camera priced the same as the aps-c camera.

than a roughly equivalent crop camera. People tend to target price points and buy the best they can at those price points.

I disagree with that.  People buy based on perceived value.  They bought higher MP cameras and paid more for them than they wanted because they perceive it will get them a better result.

Same with full frame.  People will pay more for a full frame because they perceive it will give them better results.

Whether or not any of these perceptions are reality for a given buy is debatable.  But price point is hardly the deciding point - especially when someone is buying their second camera.
