You don't have to dedicate a lens to a body unless that's what you want. You can use all your lenses on a 7D Mark II.
My only reason for doing this most of the time is to avoid the complications of lens changes in the field. I tried doing this at airshows for instance and I was worried I would drop a lens or allow dust, etc. into the innards. Also, I was more likely to miss something if there was action going on.
When I was at the Reno Air Races back in 2015 I had one XSi camera body with my 55-250 f/4.0-5.6 tele zoom and the other XSi with the 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 zoom, both ready to go. I carried both rigs and grabbed whatever camera depending on the circumstances. It was a little cumbersome but both were light weight (compared to my F-1 with the New FD 100-300 f/5.6 zoom for instance).
Also, my thinking is with the higher resolution of the 7D-II sensor, I will get the most out of the 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II lens. But, yes any of the bodies would be compatible with any of my lenses.
Thanks for your inputs, I'm learning more everyday!
