DPReview posted their Canon EOS R7 hands-on review. From their conclusion:

The EOS R7 is a unique proposition. It’s easy to see The R7 as a successor to Canon’s 7D Mark II, especially given Canon’s R5 and R6 were, more or less, mirrorless successors to their 5D Mark IV and 6D Mark II predecessors, respectively. But that isn’t quite the case with the EOS R7, as we hit on in the previous slide.

Despite offering similar specifications to the 7D Mark II in many respects, its price, interface and accessory lineup at launch is more in line with Canon’s X0D series of cameras. As it stands, it’s a proper enthusiast camera with features and specifications that should satiate the needs of most any enthusiast, be it for stills, video or some combination of the two.

[…] the R7 is a respectable camera for both stills and video. The fact Canon is using the same Digic X processor found in its more capable full-frame RF cameras – and is using dual UHS-II card slots – suggests Canon wants to position this as a more capable APS-C system.

High Image Quality with a 32.5 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS Sensor
The EOS R7 features a newly developed and high image quality 32.5 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. Designed for powerful and effective telephoto reach, it empowers fast continuous shooting with high speed autofocus, so you can capture moment-by-moment images with clear and impressive detail.

High-Speed Shooting
Whether you’re shooting speeding cars, sports, wild animals, or just life as it happens, speed is on your side. The EOS R7 lets you shoot a fast 15 fps using mechanical shutter up to 30 fps with the electronic shutter and with RAW Burst Mode with 1/2 second pre-shooting, you can capture the perfect moment down to the split second.

Blazing Fast Autofocus
Capture fast moving images with accuracy and ease. Canon’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology uses every pixel on the imaging sensor to detect focus, covering approximately 100% width and height with up to 651 zones.

5-axis In-body Image Stabilization with auto-level technology
The EOS R7 features an IBIS (In-Body Stabilization System) with up to 7 stops of shake correction with coordinated control IS. This can be a game changer for handheld videos and low light photography.
