What is missing from the 7DII specs

Lots of discussion about this spec.  WOndering how the camera (granted this is a rumor and the camera is not real) could be improved.

I undecided between more AF Points and a second card slot.  Thus I am allowing 2 votes per person (plus I live outside Chicago were everyone votes early and votes often).

If I were to upgrade, my main concern, owning a 40 D, is how noise free the higher ISO's will be. Shooting at 3200 iso in a dark theatre, the images on the 40 D just have to much noise.  I don't see the current 7 D as having much better noise performance than my 40 D.  But I imagine the price will be too high and I will be stuck looking at a
70 D.

Higher ISO - not as in 'available as a setting' but as in 'useable with low noise'.  IMO this is unlikely unless Canon fundamentally changes their sensor fab tech, but at least 1-stop and preferably more.  If ISO 8000 on a 7DII looks like ISO 3200 on the 7D, I'll most likely buy one. AF at f/8 and a multicontroller on the grip would cinch the deal.

The latest specs are very realistic. I don't think anything is missing from them.

Those who expect a 1DX at a 3x cheaper price ... will be disappointed.

Hey all,

    ISO and dual card slots.... to me, are no brainers. Cleaner files with more storage without changing cards... EASY!!!

Too open-ended.  Everyone, I'm sure, WANTS all of the 1DX specs in the 7D Mark II all for about $2500.  Ain't gonna happen.  I can see, however, another stop of useable ISO over the 7D.  If you add in dual card slots too, and more accurate AF than the 7D, then yes, you have a camera there.

I personally think that you cannot find any camera with NOISE FREE even at ISO 100...

At 10FPS, 2 Card slots would come in handy.

I am happy with my 7D so I won't really be disappointed if they don't significantly upgrade the 7DII. I think it's crazy how often people choose to upgrade their bodies for only minimal advancements. More lenses please :)

You left out "facts" as an option - that's the one I would have picked.

I am sure it will have a touchscreen....

I am almost sure it will have HDR

F8 focussing would be most welcome, but I doubt it will happen....

Some extra video modes and recording formats would be nice....

I would really like some crop video modes from the center of the sensor ( great for astrophotography)

I can live very happily without most of the "feature modes" that seem to be multiplying on newer cameras

What makes you so sure that it will have touchscreen ... any sources?

That would be more than welcome, f/8 would be freakin AWESOME!, especially for a camera with a crop frame that can do 10fps, as it would allow 2x tele-convertors giving incredible reach.
