If Canon came out with an equivalent to the Df based on the 5D3 or 1DX then I'd definitely be picking one up.

I think that the real limit is the glass. People talk about the good old days, but the reality is that the quality and resolution of lenses now exceeds what was around in the good old days of film. As a group we like to fixate over the image sensor and we forget that a camera is a system, the image quality is a combination of sensor, lens, focusing system, image stability, AA filters, image processing, and speed.
I think "ever" is probably the wrong word here. Look at Nikon's XQD format - many people (me included) had never heard of the thing before Nikon surprised us, so if we're discussing whether CFast will ever show up in a camera, then yes, it definitely will. Whether it appears because video needs a higher write speed, or because Canon makes a camera that can shoot 10fps continuously... who knows? But I'd be willing to bet that the next Cinema EOS cameras and probably Canon's next flagship dSLRs will have CFast capability built in. If there's anywhere Canon should try CFast first, the professional video department would be a safe bet. Dolina also points out that ARRI backs CFast, which makes the idea that Canon would debut CFast in a video a oriented or video-dedicated device more plausible, as the pro video community would already be prepared to use CFast in their workflow.
