How about a return to the APS-H size sensor for the 7D Mk II ?Not going to happen!
An APS-H camera can not use any of the APS-C lenses, does not have the "reach" of APS-C, and does not have the low light capabilities or IQ of FF. You get the disadvantages of both with none of the advantages of either.
You would be better off with a FF camera.
APS-H came about when FF sensors were hard to manufacture and expensive. Now, the cost difference would be minimal. The real question should be how long will APS-C last in DSLRs....
APS-C in DSLR's will stay as long as it offers the reduction in cost, lens size and weight. Until it is killed off by the mirrorless camera's of course which I think could happen because mirrorless is the realm of compactness and portability. To me, APS-C in DSLR's is dead anyway and I can't see any reason to go 'back' to that format for my personal needs.
