These specs are good. The 19 point AF in the 7D had no complaints from me, Infact that's still more cross type points than a d4! Everything is good here now just has to be around 1599$.

This does sound as the 70D to me... then I would be happy.

Plus 1 too...   The 7DII needs to be more than this, fine with resolution stated, fine also with wifi and gps built in (easy extra sales point = higher price = higher profit margin = keep selling cameras) the AF needs to be top notch for crop at 40+ points, otherwise, the real game changer can only by the performance of the sensor which in my opinion, needs to outperform the lesser crop models, not recycle the same tech.

I am a 7D owner and love the camera, but feel a bit let down by the potential projections for the 7DII. This will probably lead me to make the commitment to a FF camera albeit it a significant cost jump for a serious amateur. I look forward to the developing story in the future.

this is like a 180-degree u-turn from the previous rumors about the 7D Mark II being a huge leap forward rather than an incremental step up. is this perhaps the 70D instead? that would be a whole lot more exciting.

It's a bit more than I would expect for a 70D and a bit less than I would expect for a 7D2. It's a test camera..... It could be either the 70D or 7D2, or it could be sub-systems from either.... or both.... or some from each.

It's a rumour about a test camera.... clues about the future, but nothing to get excited about.....

These spec are a bit "sub"...
Like a pushed-up 7100. Wait for the D400. It might be superior, if this 7D specs are true. And the D400 will be - again - cheaper....

Canon, hurry up and make it better!

I wouldnt be surprised to see it priced over the 5diii.  Canon has never let us down by pricing stuff at 2 year ago pricing.  Expect them to drain your wallet as much as they can before bringing the price down.

This does sound as the 70D to me... then I would be happy.

I agree, these would be pretty disappointing specifications for a 7D MkII, even if the new sensor was superb.  It would make more sense if this was a 70D prototype, allowing the 7D MkII to raise the bar. 

This said, it is possible that Canon and Nikon are "collaborating" to deny users a high performance APS-C body, thus forcing them to switch to full frame... Rumours and conspiricy theories go hand in hand!  ;)
Outside of the 10fps, i totally agree. this camera sounds good, but not great. if people waited 4 years for this, i don't think they'd be happy, but not  too thrilled. I think these specs make a great 70D, except toss in about 5-6fps instead.
If this is the 7D, it would have to be $1400 bucks to compete with the D7100, which I think has great specs, scores good reviews, and is priced aggressively.
I'd say Canon would be better tossing in a 5DIIIish AF, 2 card slots, and 10fps at a price of $1999. That would be a sexy APS-C camera that would excite all camera fans, not just die hard Canon fanboys.

Holly smoke!!!...

5D Mark III ISO:  100-25600 (L: 50, H1 51200, H2 102400)
   Note:  For [Highlight tone priority], the settable ISO speed range will be 200-25600

7D Mark II ISO:  The same?

Overall, I personally think that given specs are pretty good.  The only thing that I do not like is one CF card.  However, points that I am starting loving this camera are
1. FPS
2. ISO (Not sure how can they handle noise level at such high ISO?  But it is pretty impressive with 2 stops better ISO)

Not sure if anyone need this function, but I think that it would be kinda handy if Canon can provide a function that help me to perform exposure lock forever until I cancel it (Like give me a option to set a toggle button between lock and set.  Current exposure lock function will timeout in certain amount of time...).  This helps in acting quick when using AV/TV mode with selecting focus points instead of select focus and then re-compose...

If DR improvement is not mentioned it won't happen, so we shouldn't expect it or speculate about it.

Since when has DR been mentioned in a spec list?   ::)

Important to keep in mind that just because a setting is available, doesn't mean it's usable.

The T4i has ISO 12800 as the highest non-expanded ISO setting.  Here are the TDP examples from the T4i and 5DIII at ISO 12800.  IMO the 5DIII shot is usable with some clean up, the T4i shot is not (assuming you'd want to retain any sharpness after the detail-crushing NR that would be needed).

Can't really tell anything from this spec.
How the sensor handles noise will be the decidng factor for me.
If it is basically the same as the current 7D with usable ISO 1600 and 3200 then I will get it.
They should also probably tweak the AF system to make it as accurate as those  on the 5D3, 1DX. Nineteen cross points is fine they just need to be accurate points.

The "stills burst mode" is the most interesting thing here for me. The only question is how long the burst lasts.

The Nikon V1($300) can shoot 4K raw for a second, which makes for some pretty awesome video clips. If they could extend it to 10 seconds (on 7D2), it would be sic.
