No. When the 7000 started to show up in homeland rags, the feature list was a lot different than when it hit these shores.
The resolution of the built in screen is good enough to display the radio's information, however, the OUT resolution from the rear panel video jack is very poor. Fact is, using any screen size much over 5 inches, and the display graphics look chunky. Even when you do the TV receive mod, the quality is 1/2 NTSC standards.
Like the 706, the metering stinks. So do the ones in most high end radios. You'd think the big three could make a good built-in wattmeter, but they don't.
The lack of true touchtone out is a shortcoming for those folks who use Mega-link a lot. And, there are only four memory slots for them. You can use a different mic, but then you lose the flexibility the stock HM-151 gives you. Incidentally, the TT mic Icom says you can use, has very poor audio quality.
Like the 706, there are still limitations on the power draw on the tuner port and/or the accessory socket only more so. And you can't use any plug in tuner devices meant for the 706. Doing so is a prescription for an expensive fix.
There is a lot of good points. The DSP is very good, and the noise blanker is somewhat better than most.
Although it can't hold a candle to a good base radio, the CW filtering is rather good, and certainly better than the 706 even with the narrow filter.
There are a few things you don't see in print. If you don't like the HM-151, and you want to restore audio to pin 3 on the mic jack, you can. You have to remove one solder jump, and add another. Doing the change allows you to use the Heil Traveler headset.
The band data on pin 5 (accessory socket) can also be restored by adding a solder jumper.
I would suspect a lot of the shortcoming will be addressed in the Pro, if there ever is one.
As for Yaesu, it is rumor only, although there has been some stuff show up in a couple of the Japanese homeland publications. Right now, the big news out of Japan is THP's new full-legal-limit, SS amplifier.
