As far as I know, there aren't even any concrete rumors on the 7D2. It's one of their newer bodies, I'd say go for it.

Wait for the 7D IV.

Seriously, would you rather wait for the next model that might be coming out in the next five years or go take photos?

If your needs and skills are more than the current 7D can provide then you should probably be looking at the 1 series anyways. 7D II likey won't be a gamechanging update (if/when it happens)

What are you shooting? What are you upgrading from? What do you want or expect the new camera to do for you? What's your level of experience?

It's possible the 7D "Mark I" isn't the right camera for you, let along a non-existent "Mark II".

But, basically when it comes down to a camera that exists, that you can go out and shoot with right now.... versus one that's mere speculation, no one has a clue if or when it might happen and even fewer people have any idea what new features it will offer.... I'd say the existing camera is probably the better bet.

Yes.... I mean, by the time you get the 7d mark2, the 8d is around the corner. You may want to wait for that too...FYI.

I'm waiting on the 6D to be released. If only Canon would "merge" the 5D II's full-frame sensor with the autofocus capabilities of the 7D, you'd have what I'd call the perfect 6D model.
