Wow, I like!  Pretty sweet sports-action shooter.  If that was my thing, I'd be very interested...

The 5D IV is coming. It will have a 6D sensor ;D

why not? you could have a decent wide angle lens like sigma 8-16 or tokina 11-16 insted that canon horror you carry in your bag  :'(

It all sounds like a big, wild guess to me.

+1
for consideration - according to my calcs, that would be a pixel size of about 3.6 microns vs. the 4.3 microns we have now. I'd be surprised if Canon would have developed a sensor like that.

I'm not going to get overly excited about CR1 specs from an "unknown source."

Reserve judgment on a sensor until real specs and results are known (probably won't know that until several months after the announcement). Consensus on this forum seems to be that noise and dynamic range improvements are more important than the number of pixels. Absent a major change/breakthrough in sensor design, I would be surprised if Canon ups the pixel count of the APS-C sensor above that of its full frame offerings.

New battery is a mild disappointment, but I assume Canon would make the change because they have to for design/engineering reasons.

Please, let them keep at least one CF card slot in a dual card system.

New ergonomic design is too vague to warrant comment at this point.

All in all, I'm more excited that we are finally getting rumors about a 7DII. At this point, the content of those rumors aren't as important as the fact that there are rumors circulating.

Seems legit. With what Northlight said about Canon going to APS-C on their coming 18 whatsit process, this sounds about right, and is also about what I have been anticipating for a while (sadly, it was not me who sent the rumor!!!).
What is truth?

New Ergonomic Design

Why is everyone assuming this means smaller?  I find the design of a 1-series body to be much more ergonomic.  :)

Anything would be better than the current 7d's sensor. iso 100 noise? check. mushy compared to rebels? check. Sold?


CHECK.


heck if they changed nothing, and gave it only a new sensor i would buy it again.
Be the best you, screw everything else.

It's funny that this statement means different things to different people.  My reaction to that part was that it probably entailed a redesign of the controls, rather than the form factor of the body.

Yep the 1-Series ergonomics must be used to be fully appreciated. While I like most aspects of my 5D3, the 1D4 is streets ahead in the ergonomics department. If the 7DII can close the gap somewhat, then that can only be a good thing. Sports/action/BIF shooters who are lamenting the demise of APS-H will no doubt be looking keenly at this announcement. The new battery? I can only assume it's a higher horsepower item than the LP-E6 to drive the relevant performance benchmarks along. If Canon gets it right, the 7DII will be an absolute killer.

If we look at what people are unhappy about with the 7D, generally it is to do with noise and image sharpness.  I am not aware of anyone being unhappy with the pixel count.  Canon may however need to up the pixel count to 24MP to match Nikon and Sony, rather than to address any real need - i.e. for marketing reasons.  Assuming Canon continues to flow the same sensor down through its APS-C range, that would be a reason to move to 24MP. - In the market for APS-C (and especially entry-level) DSLRs a lot of customers are still comparing "mega-pickles".
