Well given that the 7D is priced within $100 of the D7100, and honestly now that the DPReview D7100 studio shots are up I'm not impressed.

DPReview 7D vs D7100 RAW @ ISO 3200

From the DPReview comparison, I don't see anything wrong with the 7D's sensor. I'm not impressed by more pixels and more focus points per se. But in the past 3 1/2 years, technology has improved. Canon should be able to put a larger, OLED touchscreen on the camera, they ought to give us USB 3 transfer, and wireless chips are dirt cheap, so built-in WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS should be a given at this price point.

It would be really sweet if I could use WiFi or Bluetooth to view my shots on an iPad screen, for example. In my opinion, such features would improve my photography. Whether Canon or anyone can make meaningful improvements in focus, exposure or image quality is another question altogether -- but I do not take any stock whatsoever in raw numbers, I listen to what DPReview has to say.
