Well.. I'm not sure there's enough there that I'd jump. I'm not to keen on 6 more MP on a crop camera (guess that would have to depend on just how much work was done with the sensor.. 2 more FPS is nice, but O.K. really.. it already sounds like a machine gun when I'm in high speed. Would have to see what they did with Video.. Full time auto focus (STM) would be nice to be able to use new continuous video autofocus pancake lens. (Boy that would tick off 5DmkIII folks where STM is not provided, but was on the new Ti camera already)

Do remember that much of the info is rumour from the web, and what we get sent, so treat what you read with due levels of scepticism.

In an interesting comment, we're told [thanks] that a 7Dmk2 is on its way and that it is firmly aimed at providing a high specification crop camera.

Key specs were:

24MP - an all new sensor with phase AF on chip and noticeably lower noise than the current 18MP.

1Dx/5D3 based AF system.

10 FPS.

ISO 100-25600.

High speed video, with still capture.

Improved durability and sealing.

Available this year.
