To save costs they could just use the same AF sensor as in the 5D-IV, but disable the non-cross-type points. This would give a 41 point AF system with the ability for them to proudly proclaim that they are #AllCrossType
This sounds about right, but I still think it'll be a 19-point all cross-type AF system (but at least it'll have DPAF). When the 6D came out, its AF system was indeed lower than the t4i, which was released before the 6D. The t4i had 9 all cross-type vs the 6D, which only had ONE cross-type (facepalm).
I think the 6D was aimed at the photographers who did landscape, low-light/astro, prosumer market aka folks who didn't need a super AF system.
Canon's success w/ the 6D might've been very unexpected and now they're being extra careful on its release of the 6DII.
This site is very accurate on its rumored spec list, so if this list were to be true (with 45 or 41 AF points), I think the 6DII price will be > $2k. I imagine something around $2400. The 6D was introduced at $2100 and it was rumored to move upmarket and it'll replace the 5DIII spot in Canon's lineup.
