The 7D II offers the same ‘Intelligent Tracking and Recognition’ (iTR) mode introduced in the EOS-1D X, which uses colorinformation from the RGB sensor to identify and track subjects in conjunction with the AF system. Theoretically, this allows the camera to automatically select the appropriate AF point in order to stay on the initially focused subject. It should even detect faces to focus on them (outside of Live View).
