Hopefuly, the delay is that canon does not want to recycle the same  5 year old sensor technology.  it currently stands at the bottom and alone compared to sony, fuji, pentax, nikon, etc.  I think 7DII will have dual card slots.  also if the asking price is truly 2100, it will carry the autofocus of 5d3.  it does have to compete with the 1300 dollar nikon 7100

I'm sorry, how old is this sensor technology?  5?  Are you talking about something besides their curent 18MP sensor that came out with the 7D 3.5 years ago?  Why not call the CMOS sensor 12 years old and go back to the D30?

Yes, their 5 year old sensors are below what Sony, Fuji, Pentax, and Nikon have right now.  Fortunately they haven't used the sensor they released 5 years ago for over three years now, so it's not surprising the technology in out of production cameras is being beaten by cameras currently in production.

There's no reason for the 7DII to have dual card slots, but if they put an SD slot next to the CF slot that would be great.
