I’m a longtime Canon owner, I bought my first in 1989. It was an EOS 650 film body, I paired to with the original 50 f/1.8 and the 70-210 f/4 zoom. My digital progression has been XT, XTi, 50D, 7D, 7D Mkii, M3 and 6D Mkii. I currently own the EOS 650, 7D Mkii, M3, and 6D Mkii.
My question is this: Since there is already an R6 Mkii, is there an R7 Mkii coming down the pipeline shortly? Since there won’t be a 7D Mkiii, I would like to move to mirrorless and replace my 7D Mkii.

The R7 has only been out for 6 months. Even the R6 II was released approx. 2.5 years after the R6.

Um, yeah... Danfaz is right.
The R7 is less than a year old. If memory serves, it was announced in late May 2022 and people started getting their pre-orders in June and July. The R10 was announced the same day, but was a little later before people started getting them, July and August.

The next R7 is rumored to be an R7 C (Cinema) version. If it happens, it will likely be announced Q2 this year.
Still a rumor at this point.
As far as a mkII version... like the guys said, it would be years before this might happen.
