Sensor size FF = 24x36 = 864sqmm
Sensor size Canon aps-c= 22.2x14.8 = 329sqmm

So a 21 mp APS-c sensor would ramp up to 21*(864/329)= 55 mp.

The ratio of the areas is 2.63.

It looks like a very nice camera. However, it doesn't really come out as the "mini 1Dx" it was supposed to be.

I agree with whoever said that, except for the 10 fps, they look more like 70D-like specs.

+1  Seems not too many people appreciate  the large areal difference between APS-C and FF.  Thanks for pointing out that FF has 263% the area of Canon crop sensor.

This just sounds like a sensor test body, not the full camera, using the current af from 7d and just used to test the sensor.

"Viewfinder LCD Higher Resolution Than 7D"

That and the 19-point AF give this away as being purely fictional...

A test camera that could be the EOS 7D Mark II has been specced at Northlight.

Finally a plausible, realistic rumor !!! Sounds very good.

With these specs, the 7DII price should stay the same.
Hopefully the sensor is good.

Aah. The disappointment that the 7DII is not a 1DX at a ... 3x lower price.

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$.

My thoughts exactly.

How about keeping it simple and call it 1.6 x 1.6 = 2.56?

I doubt we'll see the 7D AF in the xxD anytime soon.

official integration test methods and approval integration test results are based/required to test on the whole system.  i personally do not think think that they can test it like that unless canon is not going to release this camera soon... then they can test it that way...

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

Yes ... because the previous so called rumors were in fact wishlists.
1DX for cheap, basically. That's what these rumors were - and people got fired up.
Yeah, keep dreaming for that 1DX-like camera for $2500. LOL

I'm so excited to finally hear a realistic rumor.
Remember: once the leaks start, we are getting close to announcement.

let me guess... we will see canon t5i in 70d body with some additional software feature like AFMA, etc...

It amazing how emotional people get with rumoured specs. Makes me laugh. Chill its a test camera and a rumour.

I think everything about this sounds like a 70D. But no chance it will get 10fps that would give the 7DMKII no scope at all. Even if a 7DMKII got 14fps which I also doubt the difference between 10-14 isnt that great for a proposed price increase. 8fps is overkill for most.

I would expect the 70D to have 7-8fps and the 7DMKII 10-12.

I hope the new APS-C sensors are good. Loved everything about the 7D apart form the IQ was very disappointed. Even if you look on DXO compare it to a 40D there is barely any difference.

Totally agree here. If you produce a brand new sensor and want to get going on testing performance, why not just go to your existing parts supplies and use this sensor to get going on test as soon as possible while working on other items like a new focusing system for and APC body separately.
