I see room for a 7Dii provided it'll have

dual card slot (sdx / CF)
dual Digic 5
APS-C @ 21-22MP
Better hi-ISO performance (hi ISO standard @ 25600)
8FPS
USB3
built-in GPS
 

Same current 7D price

Some sort of modest pixel increase is logical - not necessary but logical.

SD cards are now cheaper, readily available, very fast and the better cards are just as reliable as CF cards so I would not be surprised if there was a SD slot or two.

While built in GPS makes sense especially on the 7D? Since Canon just released stand alone gps unit I doubt it will happen because they make money selling the excessory.  :(  :'(

 The sensor & the autofocus will be the key. I would imagine these would have to have wow factor and instill lust.

doubtful it will have 2 card slots and still be at a similar price.  Also doubtful that it would have such a high native iso, doubtful it would have usb3 - and please no gps, i have enough things tracking my location and movements anyways, no need at all for my camera to do it too.

I would much rather have some smart evolutionary changes - same iso range, but improved quality in the 3200-6400 range (I just don't see the point in taking it any higher unless the the noise quality can be improved).

All in all the current 7D is a pretty solid camera, improve on its shortcomings and canon has a winner.  Toss in a bunch of garbage new stuff without fixing the shortcomings and its just a marketing tool...

GPS on the 7D would be huge.
Sports, street, landscape and nature shooters would love it. It would be a notable selling point 4 many people.
When you would not want to use it you can always turn it off so that really should not be a concern.

  :-\ Besides most photos taken out doors can often have the location backtracked already even without gps identification.

 Unfortunately(?) as we know canon has a brand new external gps module. Building the gps into a 7D body is unlikely given that they can sell you the separate module. This is unfortunate and shame though because the 7 d is a camera that you don't really wanna have a lot of stuff sticking out of because it's often used in ruffer environments or conditions where it gets jostled. If its built in you don't have to worry about forgetting to turn it on or about the battery dieing or any number of other things.

Not sooner than Canon figures out how to squeeze another body in their lineup between the 5d2, 5d3 and 60d - now that the 5d3 has an advanced af, too, there really has to be something new for the 7d2 - either never heard of before features or a much lower price tag, but that would collide with the 60d/70d.

Like in Canon rumor's "Price watch" it says replacement in 6 months and that match pretty close to Photokina 2012, let's just chill and wait rumors to come :)

Nobody ( here on this thread ) have taked  in consideration the Nikon D300S replacement.
There's increasing chatter in the Nikon camp that the D400 will be full-frame, not DX.
The speculation is that the D400 will have a 24mp FF sensor and will be sold for less than $2500 (in the US).

Also, Nikon just obtained a patent for a 24-70mm f/3.5-4.5 lens.
As per NikonRumors.com, this lens only makes sense as a part of a "cheap" full frame body kit.
http://nikonrumors.com/2012/04/06/nikon-filed-a-patent-for-a-24-70mm-f3-5-4-5-full-frame-lens.aspx

If the D400 is indeed FF and is priced around the $2500 mark, things will get very interesting for both the 5DIII and the 70D/7DII  8).

When the 5dMk2 gets phased out there will be a giant gap between the price of it and the 60d or its successor. Into this hole would logically go an entry-level FF body with still plenty of room for another. The 7dii would fill this space.
I see room for a 7Dii provided it'll have

dual card slot (sdx / CF)
dual Digic 5
APS-C @ 21-22MP
Better hi-ISO performance (hi ISO standard @ 25600)
8FPS
USB3
built-in GPS

Same current 7D price
While I could totally do without a slot for sd/sdx cards (I find them too small to handle, too easy to drop or lose in many outdoor situations), I could see it would make sense to take a wireless card.
The dual Digic 5 seems a given.
And, I would rather have better high ISO performance than more pixels.
8 fps is nice, but 7 or even 6 would be quite acceptable if the lower speed was exchanged for faster, more accurate autofocusing.
Given the nature of what I do, I'd like to see even better waterproofing so it matches the level of the 1D series.
USB3 would be great, but not a dealbreaker.
As for GPS, not really necessary. Seldom have I ever had to recall EXACTLY where I was when I took a photo.

Also, two things that I would ask for would be a larger viewfinder (the tiny image where it's hard to make out details, especially in the corners, is a major reason why I'm not a big fan of the current line of APS-C models) as well as a control dial (the one on top) that locks out, so I don't find myself in some mode not intended.

And, yes if I could have this for about the same price as the current model, I'd likely order one (or more) of the first ones.

1D iii (x2), 1DS iii (x3), 6D, 16-35L ii, 24-105L, 70-200L IS ii, 24/3.5 TS-E, 40/2.8 STM, 50/2.5, 100/2.8L IS, 135/2L, 300/2.8L, 500/4L IS, 430EX II, EF 1.4x ii, EF 2x iii

On more than just Canon Rumors and NorthLight Images, it has been said that Canon has not or will not give up the H-crop 1.3X sensor ? Maybe the 7DMK2 will have it ? Maybe Canon can get EF and EF-s lenses to work on it ? Most likely not, just EF/Full Frame lenses ? Keep it at 18MP, maybe 8 to 8.5 FPS, get the Noise down.
I would rather see 2 CF card slots, better AF, better weather sealing, and do like Nikon does- give us the choice to select 3 or 4 or 6 frames per second, not just 3 fps & then 8 fps !

The 7D has been fantastic to me. Its reliable, its fast, its relatively weather sealed (a must for me) and the most important bit, I have been making and continue to make very good shots from it.

If a new model comes out, I hope beyond hope it remains 8 frames per second. Gets dual digic 5 processors and a little more iso capability (clean iso that is), plus not making the cost skyrocket. That would be enough for me and if I haven't upgraded to a 1d mark iv as a second body by then, I'd buy a mark ii 7d.

Im not holding my breath a 7d mark ii will be anytime soon though. I don't need it yet, thats for sure.

If they make the 7D mk ii full frame, and sell it for 2500, there will have to be a reason they are selling it for 2500. A FF Camera, at 8FPS, with weather sealing and fast AF, is nearly a 1DX. It is sheer madness to assume canon would make a full frame camera with the 7D's abilities, and sell it for less than the 5D III (at 6 FPS... with its epic AF). Seriously, understand what you are asking for. Want budget Full Frame? Go film! Want budget full frame digital? Get a 5 D mk II!!!!

Seriously, the 7D only makes sense at APS-C. Anything else is loses focus of the purpose of the 7D.
What is truth?

I want a 7DII for $2000 with the following specs

Full Frame
18.1MP
Dual DIGIC 5+ – 17 Times The Processing Power of DIGIC 4
ISO 100-51200 Native
100,000 Pixel RGB Metering Sensor
EOS iSA (Intelligent Subject Analysis)
61 Point AF
21 f/5.6 Cross Type Sensors
20 f/4 Cross Type Sensors
5 f/2.8 Cross Type Senors
EOS iTR AF (Intelligent Tracking & Recognition Auto Focus)
12 Frames Per Second
14 Frames Per Second JPG Only
400,000 Shot Rated Shutter
Ethernet Connection

It would be unreasonable for Canon not to deliver  :P

I have read this multiple times now and don't really understand why there shouldn't be room for an upgraded 7D. The way I see it, there is
  • 1D X for about USD 7,000 for the professional sports photographer with pro AF, insane FPS, ...
  • 5D III for about USD 3,500 for the professional who doesn't need the FPS of the 1D
  • 5D II for about USD 2,100 for the landscape and studio photographer, with stone age AF, but stellar IQ
  • 7D for about USD 1,300 for those photographers, who want good AF, high FPS, but can't afford the 5D III or a 1D
  • 60D for about USD 1,000 with better AF than 5D II, more FPS than 5D II and same IQ as 7D for people on a budget

So, to me it feels like there is a huge gap between 5D III and 7D, which is not really filled by the 5D II for many people. I think a 7D II with an improved sensor, Digic V, about the same FPS for USD 2,000-2,500 would fit in pretty well. Then there would be room for a 70D with improved AF, slightly increased FPS (back to 6.3 or so) and the new sensor for USD 1,500-1,800.
