OMG! I just learned that for years the Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable were the same car with just different options and nameplate. That's so immoral!

Youre essentially paying for the software that costs the company money and time to develop. Programmers arent free guys.
Being a programmer myself, I agree
It could of course just be a typo?
...Who is this camera made for? - 60D lovers lusting for FF and tired of vari-angle LCD, obviously . Similar bodies, similar controls, shared SD cards...
Adorama has sold 818 5D Mark III's on ebay alone, which has netted them well over $2,400,000!.. not too shabby.. 100 5D3's were sold alone in the last 9 or so hours of that sale!! and that was when everyone was likely sleeping.
The OP's underlying assumption is wrong. And as for Canon regretting or not regretting, I don't give a damn, my dear.
I believe it is wrong to presume the APS-C is some sort of transitional stage sensor -- either for Canon or for photographers. There are folks who live happily in the APS-C world and are never going to FF. Many, many others use both FF and APS-C and find both useful. Currently, the 7D is the flagship of the APS-C world, and it's serving Canon and photographers very well. This is why I've forecasted that a 7D2 will be a stunner when it's released -- and it will firmly cement the APS-C in the Canon lineup.
With the possible exception of the 135L, I'll put my EF-S 15-85 up against most any lens. I have a 70-200L and a 100-400L and neither can outdo the EF-S 15-85.
Oh, and the APS-H is never coming back!
My list is short: Less noise at ISO 1600-6400; an even better autofocus; a little more weatherproofing; CF Card slot (don't care if they also include an SD, but I wants my CF); and that ability to control the camera through your smartphone using WiFi.
What makes your short list?
I would buy if they only addressed the noise at 1600-6400, even if that was the only change. SOLD. DONE. HAPPY. If 3200 or 6400 could look like 400 looks today on my T3i, say. What's 3 or 4 stops of improvement between friends, hmm?
