How on earth can a 7DII be "in the works" and not be "released" until Canon really have "something special and new" to offer? They either have something special and new and should release the damn camera now, or they don't have anything special and new - and after nearly five years, why the hell not! A statement like that from Canon doesn't inspire any confidence.

Also, the longer they leave it to update the 7D, the more that expectations about the camera's ability will increase and the more disappointed potential buyers will be if the 7DII doesn't meet those expectations.

"In the works"  means different things to different people obviously. I am sure Canon could release a hashed over update and still make money, but hopefully they are doing more than http and keeping the innovation going where the original 7d kicked off.

I blame the smart phone brigade for all this. What next? Will we be demanding a new washing machine every year with new features? I personally hope Canon follow up with something that like the. 7d still looks pretty darn good 5.years after its release.
