Canon Asia posted a four part interview with the developers of Canon’s latest APS-C flagship, the EOS 7D Mark II. Also, don’t miss the short clip above, it shows the EOS 7D Mark II in various dissection animations.

An excerpt:

Q: Does the body have a dust- and moisture-resistant structure?

A: Yes, the body is designed with considerations given to its dust- and moisture-resistance. In response to feedback on the design of the EOS 7D, dust- and moisture-resistance is about four times stronger on the EOS 7D Mark II, with enhancements made to many parts of the body, including the strap mount and battery compartment cover.
