Also, if it was to be "better spec" than the 5D series then it would be the 3D, not the 7D.

History shows that not to be the case. The 5DII and the 7D were more or less contemporary, and the 7D has a "better spec" than the 5DII in many respects.

No reason why the 7D2 shouldn't have at least the same spec as the 5DIII, and maybe more.

No, they weren't really.

The 5D Mark II was Q2 2008 and the 7D was Q2 2009. Only a year different, but thats huge in terms of development. The 5D Mark II has more in common with the 40D than the 7D.

Yes, there is no reason for the 7DII not to be "better" than the 5DIII, but I just can't see it having this spec. Thats what I said and thats what I'm sticking to.
