If Canon upgrades from the current process generation of 0.5µm that is reaching it's 10th year to 0.18µm that is Sony is using then I can only foresee better dynamic range and lesser noise.

If 10fps is true, I'm also hoping the current 19 point af of the existing 7D can produce enough keepers, if not upgrading the af system a bit as well. I definitely have more keepers on my 1d mark iii for action shooting than I ever did when I shot a 7D which is why I sold it. Although I'm sure IQ is going to be the concern most people will prioritize.
Nikon electric fan, gas stove, and slippers. Canon Elan 7, 1D Mark III, 5D mark III, and 2x6D. Canon 24mm Samyang/Rokinon, 85L, 135L, and many other lenses. 2x Canon 580ex II, third party speedlites, studio strobes
If there's one thing that stood out to me (more than the other things), it would be the "new battery". Why?
Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 60D; EF-S 10-22; EF 70-200 f/4L IS; EF 24-70 f/2.8L II; 580EX II. Soon to add: 50 1.2L, 135 f/2L, 8-15L
Better high ISO performance, more DR, and throw in built-in GPS and I'm good.
7D, WFT-E5A, 70-200 F/2.8L IS II, 24-105 F/4.0L, 10-22 F/3.5-4.5, 580EX-II, Wife has: 5D2, 70-200 4.0L IS, 100 2.8L IS macro, 24-105 F/4.0L IS, 17-40 F/4.0L
I also think it will have built in wifi and gps like the 6D has.
As long as it has a mag-alloy chassis, it most probably will not have integrated GPS and WiFi. The mag-alloy chassis acts as a Faraday cage, preventing decent radio reception/transmission. Canon would probably compromise on the integrity of the chassis in order to get the wireless antennas into a position where reasonable radio performance is possible.
Interesting, if Apple can get virtually every digital cell phone band, blue tooth, GPS, and WiFi out of an iPhone 5, WiFi and GPS can be done on a full size DLSR body :-) I am guessing.
Beyond that, I would love GPS, 18-24M pixels, with better noise/ISO performance. Otherwise, after upgrading from a 50D to a 7D, I am very happy.
Also, as far as the crop sensor, I am happy. I would hate to have to replace my EF-S lenses.
Does "dual DIGIC V" mean twice the processing speed of the 5D MK III?

Hmm, what's wrong with the LP-E6 battery?
My two cents are on 'introducing a new battery would be more profitable than reusing the LP-E6', e.g. because people already have LP-E6s and/or the LP-E6 is already too well faked.
For the billionth time, more pixels does not mean more noise. In fact, given the same basic sensor performance, more pixels means less noise (given the same total sensor area, of course). This is because bigger pixels do nothing but simple block averaging while noise reduction software uses far more sophisticated approaches to reducing noise than that.
Think of it this way - a perfect sensor would record each photon's location. This is sort of equivalent to "infinite" pixel count.
There are a couple factors here. Hand-holding ability suffers when pixel density is too high, reducing the 7D's effectiveness as a hand-held wildlife camera. The people I shoot with have had to make the adjustment, and it's kind of a bummer. On top of that is encountering diffraction earlier on. Problematic for landscape shooters.
There are several drawbacks to cramming more pixels on small sensors. You can take as many shortcuts as you like, but eventually physics will emerge victorious, thus the booming full frame market.....
