I don't see the f/8 AF anywhere, but it has the rest of the rumoured AF bits, including the metering system. Really want to play with this!

It may even be able to AF based on shape and colour of object, which would be very cool if it can be made to work reliably!I believe such a thing already exists in the 1D X as well as many higher end Nikon bodies. They use the metering sensor to provide that info. Bit disappointed to see this got cut out when they made the 5D3. Really hope it makes the 7D2.
Fyi: Unfortunately there is no way in the EU to upgrade your cps level with money directly, you have to purchase the two camera bodies that qualify you for the platinum level. In essence, there's no "gold" level in the eu as it's either amateur/silver like 6d or pro/platinum like 5d2,5d3, ...
Many 'serious crop shooters' also own a full frame body to overcome the limitations of the crop sensor. The 7D plus 5DII was a well-liked combination. The 5DIII combined the best of both, obviating the need.I own such a combination, but to me, the 5D series is no replacement. If I had unlimited funds and said I could only have one camera body, I'd still pick the existing 7D over the 5D3 without hesitation. About the only way I might put up with full frame is once pixel densities get more reasonable. The Nikon D800 would be adequate as a starting point for such a hypothetical body, if you could get it to 8fps and focus well at the same time.
