1. The 7D already has 8fps
2. The 7D already expands to 12800 ISO
3. The 7D's major draw: The 1.6x crop factor
4. The 7D's next major draw: 18 MP
The ASP-C is the poor man's teleconverter; loss of the 1.6x crop would make all my lenses shorter. Further compounding this problem would be the loss of resolution; unless they significantly increased the megapixel count, my crops would be weakened mightily. I use my 7D largely for bird photography; a 7Dmk II ASP-H would really not work as well for this. Further compounding the problem would be that my ef-s lenses would not work. And, yes, I have several...
However, what Dr. Croubie mentioned:
18MP 7D aps-c sensor, 1D4 gripped body, well sealed, 45pt AF with f/8, long-life shutter, 10fps and buffer to match, dual cardslots, 7-shot bracketing
I would totally buy one of these...
