...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....

Faster processors would be nice, but I find 8fps pretty good. I've never had any issues from the 7D re its AF speed or accuracy. It looks on very fast...better than my old 1Ds or 1Ds2 ever did.

If I were Canon, I'd leave the 18mp as it is. I'd like to see an improvement in shadow noise and DR as this is where Canon lags right now regardless of whether it's APS-C or FF.

The 7D is an excellent camera in its own right. Anyone who has used a 5D2 would find the AF on the 7D a relief anyway.
