For what it is I think it will be a great camera. Personally I am still hoping for a true 1D4 successor with a 1.6x crop -- that is integrated grip, weather sealing, build, 1 Series focus drive / response and shorter viewfinder blackout but with a crop sensor for wildlife work in nasty weather. Not sure I'd trust the build of the 7D II to stand up to really adverse conditions.Did you ever see the torture test that Digital Rev did on the original 7D? It was very tough so with even better sealing on the MKII, it should stand up to just about anything.
That does not give you the 1 body though and speaking of, why not a one body crop? Too low demand I would guess but I don't know.
As far as my excitement, when I saw the button layout being like the 5d MKIII I was very interested.
