Can't agree more. The main reason for the cropped camera is the extra reach for most people and a DX mode would solve this problem. If Canon chooses to price the mark III at $3500 as rumored, that may price out alot of people from getting 2 bodies and they would either keep the 7D or a mark II for backup. $3500 is almost double the price of a new mark II which is why I think the price will likely be under $3000Are we there yet?
Would the existing 7D users sell off your current 7D's after you buy the 5D3, if the AF of 5D3 can match the 7D?
No. Assuming Canon will not include a crop image format like Nikon does with their DX mode (which I'm pretty sure they've never done before) I would still like to have the extra reach the crop sensor affords. Now if they did include a "APS-C mode" with at least 10MP selling my 7D would be a very tempting option... also assuming that the 7ish fps rumour pans out too.
