With this camera getting on sale, it'd almost be priced exactly over what the current 7D sells.

And, looking at the specs of this one, i think, the 7D mark II would have to be a lot lot better,.. like a mini 1Dx. Only features to differentiate will be build quality, weather sealing, AF, AFMA. So, let's expect the next 7D to cost a lot more and to be completely aimed for professionals.

I doubt there is such a market. The major market for these fast APS-C cameras is keen amateurs who do cation photography and don't have the resources to shell out for the long-focus lenses they'd need with FF. I think that the 70D looks to be a killer camera for those people - hard to see how they'd justify many people spending a lot more. This makes me think that there will not be a 7D Mk II. In effect, the 6D has taken its price slot, even if it is a differently orientated camera.
