Updates and clarifications on the specifications are in bold below.
We think we have the specifications for the upcoming Canon EOS 7D Mark II, we’re trying to authenticate things down to the CR3 level. We have been incorrect about previous features of the camera. For one, the top plate is not an “EOS-1 Style”, and the camera does not shoot 12fps. Previous sources have said the sensor does have new technology, but it is not multi-layer, which is what we originally reported. We have been thrown off by patents showing layered sensors. We can’t confirm at this time if there is indeed new technology in the sensor. Our source for this specification list just mentions the megapixel count.
