Thanks for letting me know. 

I am excited about these new Canon DSLR's but I mostly shoot video. Aside fromt the new built-in time-lapse feature, what else is new for video shooters with these new cameras? I currently shoot with Canon 7D but have been looking for a good reason to upgrade.

While both the 5DS and 5DS R can be used for video, the improvements are more geared towards still photography.  Any advantage for video over the 5D III would be slim, if any.  So, if you mainly use your 7D for video, the 5D III might be the better option.  Also, keep in mind that with video, these cameras aren’t using their entire sensor: there is line skipping.  This means that the resolution of the sensor isn’t something one can really go off to determine the video quality one can achieve. 

I am interested in this when it comes out.

I am looking mid rank FX senser upper 6D with more cross type AF system. Juat so boring Canon keep me wait again and again. Thay release 7D mark II so why sent 2 model of DX crop sensor T6 in to market again. With 6D it become old model by the time over 2 years. Canon please replacement your 6D ASAP.  

I am always amazed at Canon's insensitivity or do I say wicked business approach. Why are the 5Ds and 5Ds R missing built in Wifi and NFC and the rebel does.
