Just like TV's.... they were able to makes leaps and bounds at first. but now, the technology is to a point where we can only take small steps forward and it's not such a big deal anymore. to most people anyway.
I agree, the DR, shadow recovery, resolution and high ISO really were the last things for Canon to tackle for still photography at this point, and they seem to potentially now have all they need to put together one killer package in the future. Most likely from here on out, it will be more automation and ergonomics/usage features.
Just imagine in the future if Canon creates a 50mpx, 14fps 65 all f8 AF cross points, 200 raw burst, wireless control and access, wireless flash control, full touchscreen capability (vs the limited features the 1DXII has), clean 25600, usable 51200, -4EV focusing, a good built-in HDR mode (which could be done easily now), etc body, there will be little to request at that point for still shoots. Video has more tweaks yet, I would assume. That kind of body could also eventually herald the end of APS-C, but as long as budgets dictate many purchases, that won't happen for a long time.
