This is the most well made camera ghost I've ever seen. ;) If it existed it could cost only $ 18,000, and would have some photographers really interested. ::) Congratulations to the creators. :)

It should be mirrorless with an APS-H-sized sensor.

I expected a false 7D mkii rumor for April fools.  That would have really gotten a rise out of the community.
OK... here goes....
Canon has announced the 7D2 today.... it is just like the 70D, except the mode dial has a hard stop to keep it from going all the way around. The tilt/swivel screen has been modified with double sided tape on the back to remove the functionality and keep the "I DON'T WANT A TILT SCREEN BECAUSE IT WILL BREAK OFF WHEN I BUNGEE JUMP HOLDING THE CAMERA BY THE FLIP SCREEN AND THEN IT AND MY 800F5.6 LENS WILL FALL AND BREAK" crowd happy.

The double sided tape took three years to develop (it is rumoured to have greater DR and lower noise than Nikon tape) and is the reason it took so long to get the camera ready for release.

This reduced functionality will be priced at $800 above the more capable 70D.
The best camera is the one in your hands

A *real* one - 7DII, 24MP dual pixel sensor, ability to read the halves of the pixels at different ISOs for DR expansion and noise reduction, 5DIII AF including f/8 AF points, 100-400L II with great optics optimized for use with the 1.4x TC III on the 7DII.  That would be some serious handholdable reach.

Seems pretty lame for April 1 tomfoolery.

You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.
