Bring it on. And if there is a substantial improvement in sensor technology (by every one else's standards but Canon), let us know when that will percolate up the line, especially to the 5D and 1D series.

This might be disappointing news, as Canon might use 4K to differentiate the 7D replacement from the 5D replacement, meaning the 7D replacement wouldn't get 4K. That would be the disappointing part.
As to whether or not the 7D replacement being disappointing without 4K, that'll depend on its price point. If it is over $2000, then yes. Under $2000, not as much.
I hate the fact I had to spend so much extra for a feature I've used once on my 5D3.
If it's more than 150 on the wide end, then I definitely won't be interested. If I want a narrow range of focal lengths, I'll get a 400/5.6. I want a zoom because I need a zoom.
Sony makes a 70-400.
Canon's recent L zooms are cited as having prime like image quality. I could live with a 200-400 like that.
A 200-400 5.6 won't cut it.
Want a 200-500 5.6 for some 700mm action with a 1.4 TC that will look better than the Tamron 150-600's 600mm @ the same f/8.
