if a Camera is good i have no problem if it takes a while to have a newer version..but 4 years and 8 months and no upgrade insight is propablly the longest in Canon histroy in the semi pro line.

Especially when the competition has overtaken the 7D in all important aspects.

what does this mean? what can we expect in the near future for this class of camera?

From Canon? - I don't know...

is Canon lacking of new innovation or did digital camera technology reach its limit?

Canon has lost the plot in my opinion.  That digital camera technology hasn't reached its limit is proven by the large number of better resolution, better noise and better dynamic range sensors on the market.  Perhaps it is truer to say that Canon has reached its limits.

Canon has rested on its laurels for too long and hasn't produced a semi-pro DSLR or "S" series lens for years.  I'm not sure Canon can come back but I sure hope it does.
