I was also wondering how this was possible :)

of course the 7D is better than the Mark II, because the second one does not exist yet.

Correction the 7d is better that the 7d mark II by 12 points.
 
Steve (6:26 PM, April 04, 2013)
The 7d is better that the 7d mark I by 12 points for being a physically smaller body? The mark II beats it on every spec except for size and price yet comes up 12 points shy. Please reevaluate the 7d make II
