I am CONVINCED it is 7D2 with a 1d style body with 2 stops ISO improvement, 12 fps and 1dx focus. Larger LCD as well.

You may well know something that I don't, but I'm convinced it won't be. Canon have left a gap in the aps line above the xxD in terms of ergonomics, and price that can still come in slightly below the entry FF level.

Of course it will not be…

Clearly, sanj forgot something in his post.  This:

Hope Canon does not resort to this type of anticlimactic promotion frequently. Otherwise it will be
"Disappointing You Always!"

So what was it then?

I can't see any announcements on http://www.canon.com.hk/en/corporate/press_release/index.do or on their facebook page.

It wasn't the G1X II, as Canon HK announced that back in March along with everyone else http://www.canon.com.hk/en/corporate/press_release/pressReleaseDetails.do?prmid=10896

So yet another thread based on BS info. At least we know it was BS originated at other places not CR.

Well not really given that the source was  Canon themselves. This wasn't some rumour from an "anonymous" source, but posted by Canon HK on their own Facebook page

OK, I see. I think it is for the G1X II, as the video they posted yesterday http://youtu.be/3TXwXQu7eeE has that cup shaped object briefly in it
