You could also take a look at the Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC USD. IT has gotten really good reviews and is at 1500$ a lot cheaper than the Canon.
Oh, and it is also black.

Really, sometimes I think the only thing that'll satisfy the peanut gallery 'round here is if the camera gets delivered by an invisible flying pink unicorn pony -- and one that grants sexual favors, to boot....Sorry, I have to...how would you know it is pink?
Can this be considered as the t4i replacement?I don't think so. Canon is trying to do the shuffle replacement dance here once again. They release something that does not really replace anything, but rather slot in between existing models, so customers get more choices and they saturate the market.
OK I just read on another blog that this new camera will be a Rebel...so this is NOT a new line of camera for Canon, which has been reported widely on the web. This camera will be in the Rebel line of cameras.
That should calm down a lot of the speculation, and confusion.
Smaller than a Rebel? We talking Kiddie Cams? I'm interested what a smaller DSLR looks like and not be a point/shoot or 4/3 camera....
It can't be a DSLR, then. Not enough room for a mirror.Ehm, why not? There is still space between the mount and the sensor, yes? And we have no idea if they will use Sony setup with static semitransparent mirror, or some ingenious technical solution to move the mirror out of the way, or something else.
If it is much smaller than a Rebel then how will you hold it?
Anyway, the integrated grip isn't my thing anyway, and here I have to wonder if its a name game. If indeed the 70D is going upmarket, could that take over where the current 7D sits? Only then could a 1D level and spec body become more possible for a 7D successor. But still, I find calling that a 7D mk2 tough to swallow. I think that would deserve a new model number. 2D, 3D, 4D are still available, as are variations of the 1D name. I don't think it could be 8D or 9D since that would be positioned lower than 7D.
Assuming the rumoured announcement of the 70D is soon, the form the 70D takes will serve as guidance as to what may be offered in a 7D position, or 1D like position. My gut feeling is if the 70D leap-frog the 7D in spec and takes its place, then the integrated grip APS-C starts to make sense. If the 70D doesn't exceed the existing 7D, then I feel the 7D mk2 will be normal bodied.
I just can't imagine something called 7D mk2 being integrated grip, but it could exist as another name.
