The IQ better be better than the Rebel
Is there a reason for this camera.
Usually the D series has something worthwhile.

Wasnt like they were going to be selling something better or nearly equivalent to the 7D for cheaper after all. For above water the tilt screen could be nice, its just not much use for U/W.

I'm really surprised they opted for a swivel screen that has to be out and to the left in order for the user to look down at it from above. I would think having the articulation at the top of the screen would've allowed for a quick-and-easy 45 or 90-degree tilt that would be very helpful for videography or shooting andscapes. With this design, holding the camera with two hands would seem to be pretty awkward.
I expect a lot of people will now go ahead and buy the 7D... or jump ship to Nikon.

The pricing gap is a little tight but perhaps the consumer market is a bit more discerning over $400-500 differences than we enthusiasts. It's not the most exciting release or game changer but an update. It's not meant to excite.
