My 7D gets very hot when shooting in the sun, hot enough that I am considering painting it white.

My 7D did that too!

I'd be excited if I could get this list:

- Great High ISO performance.  (Think Sony a7s) I'd trade high MPs for low noise all day long.
- 5D3 Auto-Focus
- GPS
- More than 10 FPS
- Weather sealing as good or better than the 7D
- 7D Ergonomics
6D, Sigma 35/1.4, 40STM, 50/1.4, 70-200/4 IS, 430ex II
T2i, 17-55/2.8 IS, 270ex

What I'd want is IQ better than the 5Dmk3 cropped 1.6x (i.e., in focal-length-limited situations) even at (moderately) low light with a good enough lens. That is, the "crop factor advantage" would have to be actually realized. I don't think that's an impossible wish - FF bodies would still beat it hands down in low light when there's no need to crop.
Besides that, I'd want better movement-tracking AF (at least 5Dmk3 level, preferably better) and speed (I could live with 8 fps, but I'd want a big buffer - that's my only real gripe with the 5Dmk3 as compared to the 7D).
Otherwise I don't care much - GPS, WiFi, dual card slots would be nice but not important, video I don't care about.

I want a faster frame rate and a little more reach for field sports and wildlife. If the light goes down I'll use my 5Diii. I wouldn't use a 7Dii above 1600 iso with my 300 f/2.8 anyway so if it can give me low noise images at that iso I'll be buying next year after the reviews are out. I'm assuming sensor and AF wise it will be a significant upgrade on the current 7d. After 5 years it should be.

Yeah, I forgot to mention the buffer gripes me too.

Honestly if they gave me a 7d with a stop better noise and dynamic range improveed and high quality video I  would buy it. But knowing Canon, the video will again be crippled and I'll be disappointed.

Bigger sensor
24mp
less shadow noise
Joystick
WIFI
GPS
3.2 inch touchscreen LCD or bigger
Heck while were at it electronic viewfinder...Canon has to get in the game at some stage!
2 axis spirit level
100% viewfinder
radio control for speedlights
Intervalometer
MF aids like zebra stripes etc

No sweat, this is all fun and games anyway. But it would be great if anyone senior at Canon actually read this stuff! Personally I am erring on the side of caution to avoid disappointment! :)

It would be exciting if it could be called (as mentioned) "D7100 killer" (IQ wise).

I think you really want a 1D-x....but for 7D money, good luck with that!

You think so? If the 7Dii doesn't give lower noise at up to 1600 they may as well not bother.

I will preorder the 7d ii if it has
* af like 5d 3
* iq better than nikon d7100 at low and hi isos
* eye control af v2.0
* working wifi implementation + fully featured wireless tethering app for ios and android
* canon RT radio flash commander built-in
* price like 7d at launch ... € 1649 MSRP

If it comes with the same performance and features but in a compact mirrorless version with top notch evf and ef-m mount ... I'd be willing to pay up to € 2.500 :-)

With that complete list, yes it's a 1D-x requirement. But if you take a single spec in isolation...no it's not too much to ask. But I really can't see a 7DII having a faster frame rate than 8pfs....happt to be proved wrong though.

You should re-read my original post. I didn't compile a list of specs. I just said I wanted slightly more reach, a faster frame rate than my 5D and low noise at up to 1600 iso. That doesn't come close to being a cheap 1DX. Of course, if I had the money for a 1DX I'd probably buy one, but ….

I'm hoping for souped up video functionality...starting with the blindingly obvious 4k (internally recorded unlike A7s) and focus peaking. If it goes this way it's to have to be good. I've just dropped around $3.5k on the completely awesome 4k Panasonic GH4 with assorted MFT glass. For video (under 3200 iso) this just blows the 5D3 out of the water. I'm not the only one looking at leaving Canon for video work.

Either the 7D2 will be pitched as a great action stills performer with modest video functions (so as not to cannibalize Canon Cinema sales) or a game changing video front runner. Either way, it's something to look forward to.
