Canon has moved on. 7D users weren't interested in red focus points so Canon assumed nobody else wants them either.

I heard today that tomorrow Canon are having a big party in Australia, there is speculation that a big announcement could be taking place at this function!?

Sarcasm on my part as I hate what they have done with the viewfinder on the 1DX. Pathetic design.

I hope the big party is in the US, preferably east coast so I can attend. I'm waiting for the invite

I see that Canon Rumours have updated their views on this to say that it is not coming any time soon. Given the low price of the D800, it is looking rather attractive right now!

The more reliable sources like Paul Pope from DPReview are stating the megapixel sensor will appear in a 1D body type.
