I wouldn't do anything. 1) I wouldn't be shooting with one anyway, and 2) the punk can have it!

I think the logical conclusion to what you are saying is that if you buy APS-C then you are locked into it for life?Only if you buy EF-S lenses. However, many of us buy EF (L) lenses and those work on FF as well. The advantage of APS-C (and the prosumer/pro 7D) is that you can get a much longer reach.
The "reach" APS-C argument doesn't really belong in the same room with the EF-S lens compatibility argument. with the possible exception of the bargin zoom, 55-250 or whatever it is, the folks who want "reach" don't buy EF-S long lenses -- they buy long "L" glass, and after market FF compatible long lenses.
The only practical value to the EF-S compatibility argument is for the WA and UWAs -- the 10-22s and the 17-55s and the 15-85s -- where a significant investment has been already made, both in $ and in IQ, that cannot be utilized in FF. These folks have to either sell their EF-S lenses and re-invest, or keep the old APS-C body. If one has invested in long EF-S glass, that investment is not very sizable.
I upgraded from a 50D to a 7D, because I felt the 60D wasn't an upgrade for my type of shooting.
or xxxxD disapear / become mirrorless APS-C
xxxD entry level DSLR
xxD or xD top level APS-C doesnt matter there can be only 1
if xxD is the top APS-C then they might get creative with the
xD and make it a Premium sports / wildlife body say maybe something along the lines of
a 1Dmk4 in a 5Dmk3 body
I do beg your pardon I read
as meaning that 7D users had no reason to upgrade to anything other than APS-C and that sensor changes (sic to APS-H/FF) were just a marketing ploy
The downgrade of the XXD line (I.E. 60D... R.I.P. XXD line... ) and the upgrade of the Rebel line tells me that the XXD line will soon pass like the cassette tape and Beta video tape player. (Dodo bird, Dinosaurs... you get the idea) I mean come on, WHY would Canon make the T4i so close to the 60D in features if that wasn't the plan? That is one HUGE jump for the lowely "Rebel" line, really.
The XD (7D) body was meant to be a test bed for the features found in the 5DIII, 1DX and other future cameras and was DESIGNED AND MARKETED to be the flagship APS-C camera.
Now, tell me WHY Canon would "upgrade" a dying, "downgraded" XXD class body in favor of dropping it's current flagship XD line? (7D)
The 7D upgrade (7DII) WILL remain APS-C AND the flagship camera body, you can bank on it.
I think the logical conclusion to what you are saying is that if you buy APS-C then you are locked into it for life??
The replacement for the 7D could be any of the 3 sensor types - there are valid arguments for them all
Make the 70d a 7dii-equivalent, but price it a few hundred less than the FF entry level camera, and everybody is happy (including Canon since they won't have two cameras at the same price competing for sales).
I dont care what its called but I would like to see a high end APS-H sensor equiped camera that is a 5D form factor.
