Hm though I must say, the 5D II was GROUNDBREAKING in the video world.Yeah I don't understand why everyone keeps trying to play out this scheme in their heads that Canon is making one body for stills and one more for video. Despite what Sony may have done, Canon has never positioned their products this way, and I don't know why they would start now. Canon has many great Cinema cameras they will sell you if you want a "video centric" camera. Their stills cameras have always been primarily for stills but happen to also shoot video.
Cameras like the 70D where also very attractive for the youtube- and video-world since it got the first iteration of DPAF - something that slowly but steadily changed the way the video world looks at the topic of autofocus.
So there are some examples where canon played quite a big role when it came to connecting photo- and video feautres in one camera.
Sony (since the release of the A7) and panasonic with the GH4 where way more agressive in this regard though.
