A 7DmkII in a beautifully weather sealed titanium body,

You don't know what you are asking for - be prepared to pay $10,000 for the body shell alone...

but same size, ergonomics (swivel srcreen) of the 60D...

I wouldn't buy that chimera - too small, controls awkward (thumb wheel misplaced, central rocker unusable)!

beefed up with gps tagging,

I do all my GPS tracking externally because I need more information than would be available in the images anyway - I don't take an image to get the position when the light or weather or anything else doesn't make the image worthwhile but still I need the position - so I set a marker in my track to return there latern when the conditions allow a good picture.

Personally i don't see any advantages having the actual bulky body. Any thoughts?

The 60D (I have one here for an assignment) is too small and the wretched swivel screen has ruined the usability!
