As a 7D owner... I would (want) think that Canon would make the 7d Mk II a must buy for those who enjoy the 7D.

Would it not have made sense for the 7d Mk II to have the following:

Full Frame

No, that would not make sense at all.

- Water and Dust Tight

Not sure it needs to be waterproof either.  I don't want to pay for a waterproof DSLR body.

- Auto Focus w/Video - More Cross Sections for Focus - Wifi

With just the above I think two things could happen. 7D owners would buy one as a step up for those of us that want Full Frame AND 5D Mk III owners that wanted a Water and Dust Tight backup.

I really don't understand why Canon would make the new 7d Mk II anything BUT Full Frame.

If YOU want FF, fine - go get the 5D, 6D or 1DX.  I don't want FF and I'm pretty sure most 7D owners would not want the successor to be.

Since I love my 7D and the abuse it can take, I was really hoping the new 7D MkII would fall between the 5D and 1D for some features I wanted at around the $2,500 to $3,000 range....

Too much.

Is there ANY chance this will be the case?? ANY?

Most likely not.
