However you want to categorize it, a full frame camera that costs $1,400 should not have just 11 AF points with only one cross type when a Rebel T6i has 19 all cross type.

6d mark II will cost ~2000$ I guess, at least it will be launch price. Yes, 11AF points is very low amount, and Ill sure there will be more in 6D II.
Btw we can discuss more features of 6d II here, ie how this camera should look like, your thoughts and hopes about it. Just be realistic).

Roberto la grasa,
It depends on in which circles you run around in.
There are two kinds of "pros". The full time pro that makes his bread and butter with his camera. Then there is the part time pro that makes money with his camera but has a real job elsewhere. The latter was me at Hallmark.
When I got to digital I used many cameras but my main camera was and is a 1 series. Now exclusively. But I also used two 7D's. All the 5 series and even had five XTi's. I have had a couple G series and still have a G15.
However, none of that makes them a pro level camera. The only full on pro and flagship camera in the Canon line is the 1 series.
To the part timer a pro camera whether it is a 5D Mk III or a 1Dx, it is a large investment. But to the full time pro, it is just an entry line in the books.
You are not going to see gimicky things like a flip out touch scree on a 1 series (kinda a chimper thing). You won't even see a mode dial like the 5D Mk III has. It seems Canon's line of reducing the number in the xD line indicates a better higher quality, more pro oriented camera. IE the 7D, 6D. and finally the 5D. I suspose at some point there will likely be a 4D that is better than the current 5D Mk III.
This is no different than the Nikon line. The D series, like the D4s, is Nikon's full on pro flagship camera. The others are 'nice' but not really a pro camera. Even though some pros will use them!
Pro features and technology always seem to find its way into the lesser cameras in time. Look at the current T6i. Pretty darn good camera in anybodies book. Is it a pro camera?

Yes, only 1Dx is pro camera, 5d III officially called semi pro, as well as 6D. But we are discussing 6d mark II desired features here.
I guess 6d mark II will have 24mp matrix with ISO 100 - 102400 range.

When you start a thread there is no telling where it will go. If you ask for professional features, you may end up with differing answers. Canon will never offer things that compromise 1Dx status as the flagship camera. Those only trickle down.

I'm not asking for professional features, iso 102400 will mostlikely become semi pro camera standard in 2016, since maximum iso 51200 was a standard for semi pro cameras of 2014 (like Nikon d750).

If you really must have a rotating/tilting LCD screen, they sell external 5/6/7 inch LCD monitors. I've considered buying one for when I want to do Live View focusing, and then always wish for a larger screen that I could turn and tilt towards my face.
