So, I cross my fingers and hope for a best possible AF system and good high-ISO performance (rather than very high resolution) on the 7DII. I´d be interested if some of you more technically competent could comment on this.I agree. Were the 7DII to appear with quality AF and better high-ISO performance than my 5DII I'd trade in a heartbeat -- but Canon won't do that because they want to continue forcing the sale of a $4k+ body for indoor shooting. They'll crank up the pixel count so that the new-gen sensor tech is offset and we won't see substantially better real performance. Note that I write *real* performance, as opposed to the red-herring of claims based on stronger JPEG/JFIF NR without actually improving the quality of what comes off the sensor.
