Is the 7D a replacement for the 50D?

looking over the specs and stuff, it seems to be suited to a different user base than the 5dmkII, with the high fps thanks to dual digic processors, expanded iso range and retaining the 1.6 crop factor making the most out of tele-lenses it seems ideal for sports and wildlife shooters. whether thats actually a factor remains to be seen, it might just be that canon wanted a bridge between their crop/consumer range and their fullframe pro range.
i'll be a little annoyed if it does drive the 5d2 price down as I've just got mine, but i cant see it having a huge effect as the 7D is still a crop sensor camera.
