Yeah I don't use the video function on mine. But, as long as they don't compromise stills features in favour of video it doesn't bother me. Show me an improvement in ISO perf, a healthy burst and an upgrade to the focus system and I'll be sold.

Even though I traded my 7D for a 5D3 I would trade the 5D3 for a 7D2. I'm hoping it's just an APS-C 5D3 that's a stop behind in the signal to noise ratio and dynamic range.
+1 Man I would be in heaven.
My guess is around $2500, if it has 10 FPS and an AF system matching the 5D III's.
Yes ... but it won't.
Like many others, you are expecting the 7D to be a 1DIV replacement - with top-of-the-line AF, 10fps, etc..
Canon might come up with such a camera ... but this won't be the 7DII.
The whole point of 7D-series is to provide advanced specs at an affordable price.
So, one thing that we can be certain about the 7DII is that the price will remain basically the same.
This in turn means that the 7DII won't be spec'd much differently than the 7D.
There's only so much that Canon can squeeze into a $1700-1800 camera.
Again, the 7DII won't be a 1DIV replacement.
It will be a 7D replacement - with a better sensor, tweaked 19-point AF system, silent shutter, etc..
There's going to be a surprise feature of some sorts - like color-based AF tracking or some WiFi gizmo.
Other than that, though, the 7DII will be a refined version of the 7D.
It won't somehow morph into a 1-series ... at a 4x lower price.
Anyway. Just my opinion. I could be wrong.
7 D II in the 2. half of 2013 ->
Yeah, more time to save I 'spose!
In another forum they suppose >2500$ for the MK 2. I hope they will be wrong with this rumor
