There have been rumours around for a while, that the Canon 7D MkII was to be replaced with more spectacular a MkIII version. Then, I'd read the 80D was to be replaced, and possibly combined with the 7D. It seems that announcement has finally come to fruition, in the form of the Canon EOS 90D, which at the current time of writing, they're taking advanced orders for.
For those with EF/EFS lenses, it will use those just as the old 7D and 80D do. I’ll leave you to make up your mind on the 7D/80D replacement with the link below so you can view the spec.

It probably would have been a good upgrade from the 750D (24Mpxl), my previous DSLR, which generally I was very happy with. How it compares to the 7D MkII I'm not so sure.
What I do miss, is the movable LCD screen the 750 had, which has been carried over to the 90D. It is handy, not just for selfies, (though I can't afford a new camera if take any selfies), but very handy for those shots where you need the screen at a clear viewing angle when using a tripod or taking that photo from an awkwardly high or low position.
What I do use, is the Canon Connect app on my mobile, which allows remote shooting, as well as downloading/viewing photos.
As for video, very disappointing for me, I don't find using an LCD screen clear enough to use, preferring to get the eye close to the image to see exactly what's there.
However, for those that may be wondering, the 5D MkIV is still to my mind, the best move.

The only reason why I shared the info was, quite a few folk at the reserves I visit have been talking about the 7D MkIII, so I guessed one or tow, or even many more, would still be wondering the same.
However, that camera you have is doing a cracking job with you at the helm. .
