Just a point of curiosity.
Why does anyone think Canon will create a new camera and call it a 70D?
Frankly, I'm bewildered by non-stop talk of a 70D camera. Where did this idea originate? Has there been some credible leak or a well-sourced rumor? Or is it all pure fantasy?
At this point, I leaning toward believing a 1DX may enter the realm of reality. But something called a 70D?
I think it is because of the 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, and the 60D. A 70D does seem very likely but not absolutely guaranteed occurance. There is no reason to not expect one, it competes with the Nikon D90, and Canon will not give up on outselling it. At a slightly lower price, cost concious buyers jump for it.
When a D400 comes out, we will see a 7D MK II about the same time, its all about competition and buyers who want the latest thing.
