Nah. They won't put a 24mp sensor in the 7DII.
Depends on what people it should appeal to - and more metapixies has consumer appeal
Yes, megapickles appeal to consumers.
The question is, is the 7DII supposed to be a consumer camera?
If yes, why should Canon put their 61-point pro AF system in a consumer camera - as many are asking here.
And if not, why should Canon appeal to consumers with a (noisy) 24mp sensor.
