whether DXO and the D810 is flawed or not...I sure wish Canon brought out something with those megapixel numbers....

It's probably not the camera for me, so I'd be more surprised than disappointed. IMO the long delay on the 7DII must relate to the sensor; everything else is in place.
So if the sensor doesn't offer some significant advance over the 70D s new tech of duel 'pixel' I'd be surprised. I still wonder if Canon would have the b***s to make it a high speed, low light king of around 16 mp. Leave the really high mp to the amateur lines and really kick out some FF challenging IQ from the crop sensor.
And if Canon can do that, can it finally deliver a FF sensor that is also class leading? By class leading, I'm referring to noise control and DR
Canon already has a class-leading sensor, it's in the 6d: nearly zero (esp. vertical) banding (better than 1dx @iso100) means almost the full theoretical dr is actually usable. It has good dr @base iso (boosted +1/3ev by ML and =15ev with dual_iso) and superior dynamic range at high iso: http://sensorgen.info/CanonEOS_6D.html
Don't underestimate just how much smaller and lighter a 6D with compact lenses is compared with your 5DII combo. The new 24-70 IS + the 6D makes a highly versatile and compact package. Put lenses such as the excellent 40 pancake on and you are as light and nimble as a 'mirrorless'.
Given your sentiments you're making hard work of it with a 5D + grip + 135L.
If you think your images are AMAZING now just wait till you've tried the 6D - especially in the dark
