My guess is that it will be an AF system with around 40ish AF points.

However, the big question is... WILL IT HAVE A FLIPPY SCREEN?  ???

Haha! And will it come in pink to captivate the long-ignored female market.

Honestly, I see Canon recycling the same AF system to save resources. Doesn't Nikon do that?

Except that Nikon's 39-point system is significantly better than Canon's 19-point system.

The 7D's AF is fast, but not very accurate...

Well, it won't recycle an existing system if this is true...

"It will have a new sensor, as well as a variation of a new autofocus system that it will share with a new EOS-1 body."

AF has always been a crap shoot here and there on my 7D. Will get many complex, fast-moving shots with dead-on accuracy then have a series of completely OOF shots of static subjects with plenty of contrast to lock AF. Clueless as to why. If it weren't for this, I'd never consider upgrading. But, at this point, I'm really looking forward to the next gen that can hopefully minimize this issue. It has just never made sense to me.

For me(doing a lot of aviation) at first when i try to lock onto a jet coming in, it hunts a bit, Using my 100-400L. Usually just once then it locks on. But yeah ive had days where they come out tack sharp and a couple days later not so much. Im sure ill grab up one of these as soon as they hit the market. LOl

I have this belief that the mark II will have WiFi.

Right, and this is with the 70-200 2.8 IS II glued to it. There should be very few situations or reasons for fumbled or erratic AF with that combo. I sent the combo to Canon several times and it came back worse, then a lot better (but still not what it should be), so I just ended up cutting my losses on that back and forth. It works really well most of the time. I have just learned to shoot in burst in those moments where I know I absolutely must have a guaranteed in focus shot so I can weed out any OOF frames.

Ditto for me. The static oof's are really frustrating!

Double ditto. I posted some BIF shots on here a while back, I had a Puffin, quite large in the frame smack bang in the centre and my camera would NOT lock on. I tried all methods of AF but it was useless. When it did lock, great, but lots of frustration in the process.

The 7d2 needs an IQ injection. Not a half stop of RAW improvement, that's not enough after all this time waiting. Do people really think that will be feasible for Canon to do ? ? ? I don't and that's why I intend to spend my budget on an a7r before the 7D2 is even released. I'll keep the original to use for birding and the Sony will become my walkaround prime camera. I'll be spending money on Sony/Zeiss lens after lightening my Canon lens line-up..........

Same here. When it's "on" it's really "ON" and things look great, but then there will be a sequence where it just doesn't focus properly at all...:confused:

I bought an old 1Dmk2n this year just to get a body with consistent AF. I hope the 7D II is better.
