Pricing of 7d vs 70d

Just wondering why still the pricing of the 7d is higher than the 70d by 300-400 dollars?

Don't get me wrong. I love my 7d, faster AF, more accurate AF, raw/jpg button(thanks), qmenu button, still get to use my CF cards, 3 programming modes, removed the rarely used creative zone modes. My 50d will enjoy a much deserved rest as my backup wedding B/W and wildlife cam.

The 7d feels to me more geared toward the serious photographer. Not much into the video yet, but can see it need later. always seems to be one of the moments in weddings that a video might have served the client more than a still.

Just wondering with all the talk about 70 being so much more in image quality etc  than the 7, Why are the big camera houses still selling the 7 for so much more?
