No, it looks like a Minolta 7D done over by Sony.

Sony has the Minolta staff, even though it says Sony on the front,
it's still a minolta as all Sony DSLR will be since it's former
Minolta folks designing them.

I don't see this as a revised 7D. If Sony wanted to deliver a warmed-over 7D, they could have had one out the door long before this. The 7D had some nice features and many loyal users, but it's very long in the tooth and had some significant shortcomings. Sony is serious about being a major player in DSLR's and the initial specs of the A700 suggest they are pitching this at the 40D/D300 range of the market.
