My guess is it will give us 24-32 MP in a APSC sized image circle and a Digic-10 era GPU, along with animal eye tracking focus and compatibility with the most lenses of any camera system in the world, as I think compatibility with EF/EF-S and RF is a given. If it caries the "7" from the 7D/II it will be weather sealed and robust. It will have a high resolution screen and EVF. It should also have a touch screen and IBIS, as it will bear the name representing Canon's flagship. Probably a backlit imager with the best low light performance seen from Canon in any APSC offering to date.
That is what I have been patiently waiting for. I don't really have a clear path forward if they don't produce one!

my prefered camera would have been 7D2 but it lacks precision focusing like EOSRP
EOS R7 would solve this, especially if it comes bundeled with a compact kit lens
Should I sell 7D2 and get R7 ? or better keep an all weather sturdy DSLR ?
EOS RP would have been great if there were compact RF lenses... But maybe getting RF 16 and 35mm and using primes as go around lenses would solve the issue ?
The thing that makes me excited is the eye tracking focus system. Yet, I only have opinions of others as to whether it is the "real deal". The 20 MP R6 just isn't enough for me. The 45 MP R5 is $3,900. I'd hate to pay $3,900 to find out that the AF system as a whole is not good enough for me. That is where the R7 comes it. It should have both high resolution and animal eye tracking.
Actually two more things are potentially exciting. IBIS, and superior low light performace. In the R5/6 the IBIS seems for real. It is pretty easy to see how well camera shake is handled. But if low light performance is not far, far better than the 7DII then that would not be very exciting.
However, so long as it is priced below the R6 I would not mind taking a chance on it! So let me stress test the claims of the R5 in a camera that costs half as much! That is what would sell me!
