A litle better auto focus would be nice.

probably not going to get better AF than the current 7D

Coming in at five years old this January, it will be one of Canon's oldest DSLRs without a replacement. It would be incredibly surprising to me if it did not get an upgraded AF system to something at least on par with the 5d3, if not better.

Again...

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."

Do you really think that they are going to put an AF system that is no better than the one in the 7D in a new 1D body?

I need this camera, and a Full Frame, to much money to spend, none to spend with.

I reckon it will have the same af sensor as the 5DIII/1DX, in fact the 7DII will be a crop version of the 5DIII

Ok, here's my predictions on what we will get in a new 7D Mark II if it shows up in the next six to months.

-20.2 MP dual-pixel sensor
-61 point AF all cross type(f/8 support on center point)
-Movie servo AF w/facial recognition
-8.5 frames per second (50+ full size raw capable buffer/unlimited JPEG)
-3" articulating touch screen
-H.265 video codec (10bit 4:4:4, 2.5K, 1080p60)
-Clean HDMI out
-Dual Digic 6+ processors
-ISO 100-25600
-On-screen level
-Wifi
-Dual card slots (one CF, one SD)
-10-bit JPEG compression??
-List price=$2499.00

This is not my wish list. It is just my best guess on what we will get based on what Canon has done recently, what the competition is doing and what technology is emerging.

HotBob...that wouldn't suck. I could wish for a lower price tag... but it is not so horrible assuming that the ISOs are clean as the 6d at the very LEAST ... and it works! :)

I'm hoping they push a 7Dc, with features like the 1Dc but a little more affordable. The dual digics make it a perfect choice to migrate to the "c-class".

I'm beginning to wonder if it's actually going to come out.

Canon is probably holding back/having production issues like the all the lenses that were supposed to come out this year.

Maybe Canon should go steal some of the Sony engineers, with their massive profit margin.

Engineers can't build a new fab plant overnight, nor can they bring Sony patents along with them.

That said, with high-resolution, high-frame rate full-frame cameras a real possibility - all it takes is enough bandwidth - I'd say that pro-level crop cameras are a thing of the past. If you can shoot 8-10fps at full frame, crop to APS-C and still keep 20MP or so, there's not much need for a pro crop camera. And, with an animal bobbing its head up and down while running, you can just track the eye with the centre point and crop around it, instead of constantly changing the AF point to deal with the fact that animals' heads move up and down while they're running.

IMO crop cameras will increasingly be relegated to ultra-compact bodies (either with interchangeable lenses or fixed zoom lenses), where size is more important than performance.

Not sure I follow what you're saying through all of your non-sequiturs. But all I was saying is - Sony is kicking Canon's butt in the realm of sensors, and have been for a while now. It's about time Canon tried to catch up.

I just came back from a Canon live training class and I was talking to one of the canon reps that does evils on new canons before they are even sold to the public. I asked about the potential for the 7d ii and his response was that he has not heard anything about when and what in it. He does feel that canon Japan is working on something but is unsure if it is the mk ii.
