...From Canon Rumor...
7D Mark II
■Dual Digic 5
■100% viewfinder
■61 Point AF from 5D Mark III
■Announced after 70D

This is a grain of salt spec list, though I do think anything announced for Photokina would be mostly finalized by now.

7D Mark II................VS.........................7D
■Dual Digic 5.........................................■ Dual DIGIC 4
■100% viewfinder..................................■ 100% viewfinder

■61 Point AF from 5D Mark III....................■ 19 cross-type AF points

Ok...7D mkII ...upgraded processor and auto-focus.
Price is not listed....

The 61 point AF won't fit in a cropped sensor body. The 45 point AF from the 1D Mark IV might. To be honest, I find 19 AF points more than enough.

Dual Digic 5 might happen, it would depend on the bandwidth needed by the camera.

The 100% viewfinder would be a no-brainer.

Canon might have to increase pixel density to keep up with the competition but I'm guessing any increase would be modest (20 to 22 MP). If the new Rebel T4i gets an increased MP sensor then Canon would almost have to do the same with the 7D replacement.
