I think that at this time last year, I would have bought off on the "7D Mark II can't be APS-H because it would screw up naming convention" argument, but I think Canon has shown they're thinking way beyond that already. as a long-time participant on the forums, I feel we often give Canon too little credit for thinking aggressively outside of the box. which is actually unwarranted, because Canon have become the industry leader by taking some major risks and creating genuine innovation.
for starters, Canon are the folks that came up with the APS-H in the first place and continued to use it well after everyone said they'd abandon the format. secondly, Canon (at least claims to have) merged the 1D line, against everyone's cries of 'preposterous' and 'what will we do for high resolution? the nikon d4x will be 38 gajillion pixels'. third, Canon did stick a near-APS-C sensor into the G-series camera, while still calling it the G-series. this broke two rules that everyone assumed that they would adhere to: a. that we can't change sensor size without changing the lineup name, and b. that canon's large-sensor compact would HAVE to be interchangeable lens because that's what everyone else was doing.
I don't see why Canon's next surprise won't be an APS-H 7D Mark II. sure, people will bitch for a while about not being able to use their 10-22 ... until they buy their 16-35. in reality, everyone with a 7D is probably already rolling with a few L lenses (even if it's the 70-200mm f/4 L), which will work just fine on an APS-H sensor. raise your hands if you really bought a 7D so you could shoot wide format shots. that's what I thought.
we always give Canon crud over being too stodgy and conservative but I feel as though WE, the consumer base, are actually the ones that are stodgy and conservative. Canon is bringing some very cool product to the table this year and I think awesome things are in the future for the 5D and 7D lines.
