I don't think the 7D II rob sales from the DX. I've been saving for the 1 DX for many months now and on the verge of the getting one. I did have a fleeting thought maybe I wait for the 7D II I can then purchase that along with the 5D Mark III. I'm thinking maybe I can have the best of the both worlds but I held that 1DX again and felt the solid build. There's no doubt I'm getting the DX. The 1 DX and 7DII will cater to two different markets IMHO...I am hoping the 7D2 is to the 7D, as the 5D3 was to the 5D2 and is compelling enough to make me want to upgrade. I am specifically looking and hoping for a sizable improvements in DN, High ISO Performance and the 5D3 AF system or similar.I am so disappointed with the 7d by today's standards that any improvement will be worth the upgrade. Just show me where to sign...
The problem Canon has with the 7DII is that it will certainly rob sales from the 1Dx. If 10 fps @ 18mp with 61 point AF is true then it really will be a 1.6x cropped 1Dx. I suspect that Canon will leave the IQ much the same as the 70D, it's got to hold back on something for this camera.
Naturally we all want a camera with less video compromises (the 7D has a really strong AA filter), far better noise handling threashold and a DR to match the current Sony Exmore CMOS sensors. But I seriously doubt that Canon will invest in sensor tech for this camera and I think they will brin in the new tech for the 1Dx replacement or it's high MP cousin.
To be honest... I think I have... I have all the gear I need. I am not, at the moment limited by my equipment, but by my own imagination!+ 100000000000000
I do not, however, have all the gear I want, nor the finances required to get it!

1Dx 400f/2.8 II + 1.4x, Shot @ 560mm f/4 & 1/1000th ISO800
3 new highend bodies? So one is supposed to be a 7D2, another is the high MP 1D body, and possibly the 1Dx successor is the third? Makes sense if we're having a 5D4 in feb/mar 2015.A 5DIV in 2015 that could be possible...
Good point OYes I agree please stop with the rebels enough already!!!! 7D II would be nice maybe a 14-24mm 2.8 glass or another 1 series???
Profits from Rebel sales subsidize the R&D for the 7D2 and 1-series cameras.
Good for all as long as the Japanese government don't do anything stupid again to provoke one of the world largest market...
Have a nice day.
Patience patience.. When literally every other company other than Canon is producing some top of the line bodies and lenses.. (minus Nikon) I still have my bank in Canon. I'm sure they'll blow all competition away very soon. -let's be optimistic-Yes I agree please stop with the rebels enough already!!!! 7D II would be nice maybe a 14-24mm 2.8 glass or another 1 series???I think they could just stop with the rebel series. After the t3i, I don't care anymore tbh.Oh thank god!! The EOS T6i with an improved 18MB APS-c sensor is finally here!
I'm thinking 20.2MP sensor for the T6i.
+10000000!!!! That's a great question Dilbert......hmmmmmm!!!Looks like a sweet camera.The previous Nikon S versions have been very minor increments. Expect nothing more than a bigger buffer and faster processing to go with it. As far as I know there's never been a new sensor or an increase in frame rate introduced with an S version.
By all accounts this won't bring Nikons flagship up to 1D X levels of performance.
And if it does or bests Canon, what then?
