Here is 7D mark ii listed in this website
http://ps.no/ArtDtl.aspx?i=214396
It suggest the date to be 20th of april 2011.

Oh, please.  Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's a typo.  If you Google the part number (Varenummer: 3814B031), you'll see that it's just a 7D + EF-S 15-85mm kit.  Not a MkII verison of the body.

Typos like this are how rumors get started.  Oh, wait...that's perfectly appropriate here!  :P

It will be great to see a 7D with APS-H sensor for the following reason:
1.The size of the body can be smaller than a FF body (compared to 5D II).
2. with the same MP, it will have lower pixel density than the APS-C and hence better low light performance and better dynamic range.
3. With 17-40mm lense, it will give us a 22mm equilvalent focal length. at the same time to avoid the bad optical result at the corner when used on FF.
4. The price will between  the 7D and The 5DII (hopefully)

Can it?  The 7D has an APS-C sensor, and while it's technically smaller than the 7D, any given dimension (LxWxD) is less than 4 mm (0.15") less than the corresponding 5DII dimension.  Also, the 7D is 10 g heavier.  So, I'd think it likely that increasing the sensor size (and corresponding mirror box, etc.) would, if anything, make the new body even larger than a 5DII.

a 7D specs with APS-H might easily cost similar to the 5D series. If something like this happens it will be a new series. Every series has it's price range, and I think during time this price range has more chance to decrease rather than increase (YEN prices).  Unfortunately, lenses is a totaly different story    :-[
