Although no release date yet, numerous sources state that its successor, the EOS 7D MkII will be announced this year at Photokina in September under a new name. Rumor also has been going around that the new model will be Canon's APS-C flagship model and will feature 24 megapixels (from its previous 18 MP), improved auto focus performance & focus points (supposedly taken from the 1DX) and an optical window-type viewfinder similar to those found in 35mm rangefinder or mirrorless cameras.

Updates on the anticipated 7d mark ii have recently surfaced, is confident of the new leaks on the upcoming model expected to be announced at this year's Photokina. No built-in wifi on the new model (sorry folks), no touch screen (though a monitor cover will come with it), the top plate of the 1Dx wont we appearing in the new model either despite ongoing rumors. Additionally, an improved auto-focus system with a dual-pixel autofocus feature has been confirmed (beneficial to the sports and nature photographer) and finally, a whopping 12 frames per second burst rate.

An improvement in the sensor can also be expected from the Japanese manufacturer. Reports have claimed that it will increase to 24 megapixels from the 18 megapixels in the previous 7D. We'll just have to wait for Canon's 7D mark ii specs at its announcement at this year's Photokina.
