Default Rumors on 7D, 5D replacements?

I think Canon's long overdue to release updates to the 7D & 5D lines. Anyone have any inside knowledge or wild guesses as to when, what new features, etc? I'm almost ready to buy

The 5D3 has been discussed here http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ca...-out-soon.html

The consensus seems to indicate late this year for the 5D3.

the 7D is only about 18 months old, it will be mid to late 2012 before it gets replaced. The 5D will be this year. Steven

the 5D3 and the 1ds4 will most likely be the new 2 camera to be updated, before a 7DmkII comes out. No ones still has a camera that matches up in every way with the 7D. d300s is very close as a camera, but no video. And the k-5 does not shoot as fast for action or videos as well. So there is no pressing need for a 7D upgrade this year.

1ds3 is getting a long in to tooth. So it really needs a replacement. The 5D2 is still a excellent full frame. And canon will most likely update it also as it is getting close to being 3 years old.
