It's not going to be aimed solely at sports and nature, it is going to be what it is today - the flagship APS-C camera in the Canon lineup - only better - regardless of what you typically shoot. The 60D is a really nice camera but it isn't a 7D nor was it ever intended to be. I've beat the hell out of two 7Ds, one of which I got the month it was launched and they're tanks. IMO, they're slightly more solid than the 5D2 build/sealing wise.
A 7D2 addressing the noise at higher ISOs is going to fly off the shelves. The AF is fantastic on the current 7D, so even a marginal improvement on a 7D2 would be all gravy. Of course it will be more money...at least for the first 8 months, just like every other camera that has been introduced. I'm not in the market for another APS-C right now, so whether it's $1,600 or $2,600 doesn't really matter to me. I AM in the market to replace a 5D2 that has been dropped one too many times, so will continue to watch the 5D3 pricing (though concerned about the repeatedly reported softness in the 5D3 video also experienced in the 6D). Lots of new cameras in the market and competition is good, let the competition do what it will to pricing. I just don't understand the trolls that complain every time a new version of anything (camera, lens, tripod) comes out with a price increase...especially the ones that aren't in the market anyway. If you can't afford it, then buy a different camera; it's like complaining to Mercedes every time a new C class comes out with more features but a higher price... go buy a Honda or Toyota already, both great cars. If your Nissan Altima only has 17,000 miles on it and it's just two years old, why are you looking at new car prices anyway?
