No problemo ... Canon can take as long as they want, as long as they release the best 7D II to knock the socks off the competition ... if the new 7D II is an APS-H, I'd be thrilled and pre-order right away.

APS-H with APS-C crop mode will add enough for others to consider. Nikon has been using crop modes for years, whats up with Canon?
5Dmk3, Tokina 17-35 f4, 35 f2 IS USM, 85 f1.8, 100L, 17-300L and EOS-M. PHottix Odin / Mitros and 600EX-RT

APS-H is dead for these reasons, it was just a hack that still doesn't use the full ef glass but looses the advantages of aps-c:

* With the current design, you cannot use ef-s lenses with aps-h or ff because of the larger mirror - and Canon is unlikely abandon a lot 7d and other aps-c users who invested in Canon ef-s (60mm macro, 10-22 & 17-55 zooms) or 3rd party ef-s lenses (like the tokina uwa).

* Canon likes well-off people or pros who want better iq than aps-c to buy ff cameras with very expensive tele primes and/or teleconverters to gain reach

* For most beginners/amateurs crop cameras have advantages: larger dof, longer reach, more fps. And in 5-10 years the aps-c iso performance will be so good to satisfy most people, so why rock the boat now?

Well, this was unexpected. Don't take forever, though, Canon.

Beside the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II & 24-70mm f/2.8 II, I can't think of any [non-niche] noteworthy lenses Canon has announced in the last three years.

70-300L :D

I've seen a lot of people around here (and elsewhere) praise the 40mm f/2.8 STM as a great general-purpose lens.  And it certainly has a noteworthy form-factor!  :)

IMHO, a 5th 7[0/5]-300mm f/4-5.6 lens is not noteworthy. OK, IQ is better, but not 70-200mm IS II ground breaking better.

As for the 40mm f/2.8 STM, if it wasn't STM, it would just drop in the crack between the 35mm f/2 and the 50mm f/1.8, which is why I think it's just another video lens.
