I don't read Japanese, but the characters after 3.0 don't match the ones after 10 in the 7dii description. Maybe it means 3.0 inch screen? Makes no sense for the 70D to be lower fps than the t4i and the same as the t3.

I read Japanese. The characters in the second bullet point under the 70D do refer to the display and not fps. Not sure if people are getting the 3 fps from there or elsewhere in the text.

Also the important thing to realize about this is that it is some person or groups "prediction" as 予言 is clearly labeled in red in the article title at the top. Also next to each camera they they give percentages for probability. 70% for the 70D then 85% for the 7D Mark II, then 80% for the EOS M2 specs, then 50% for the EOS-1DSx specs.

Agreed, 10fps is a headline for the 7DII, 3.0" articulated screen is the headline for the 60D, both as Neuro pointed out at 24mpx

yeah, hard to believe they would make the fps of the 70D less than the 650D/T4i. Who would buy it???

These are only one website's predictions of what they expect to see in 2013.  None of what they're suggesting is exactly unexpected or controversial (the 3fps 70D aside - assuming that was their meaning).  Personally I'd trust Craig's predictions a lot more than Xitech's!  ::)

1DSX.

I don't like the sound of that. It means that the high MP body will have built in grip (elephant sized camera).

As if our camera bags aren't full and heavy enough already?  :P This camera will be the final step to killing my neck and shoulders.

CR0? :P

5.3 FPS on the 60D, which has already been re-positioned . . . how they going to spin it?

New processor + MFA and they can sell it for another two years with nothing else.
Canon Rumors is presently creating photographer shortages in Middle Earth (all the trolls emigrated here)

True that!  At football I had a 1DX with a 400 on a monopod and another slinged around my neck with 70-200 and usually Sunday and Monday I couldn't walk, haha.

The specs on the D70 does NOT say 3fps. It says "3.0-inch Variable Angle LCD"

Thanks for the clarification!

I started saving for the 60D about the time the 70D rumors started to fly. Then the rumors died down for awhile. Then the 60D showed-up at Costco, and I figured the 70D must be on the way sometime in the next few months. The huge drop in price seems to confirm that for me ($899 body when I started saving, $669 now).

So here is my "IF" list:

  • IF the sensor has improved high-ISO performance,
  • IF the the screen still articulates,
  • IF the auto-focus system shows some advancement (even slightly),
  • IF the price is not significantly higher (maybe $1,200 or less for body?),

Then I'll buy the 70D as soon as I've saved enough. I might also add AFMA to the "IF" list.

My two big worries are:

  • The 24MP is for marketing, and doesn't improve high-ISO noise, and
  • the price will be much higher than I can accommodate.

The new sensor and possible 25,600 ISO have me hopeful on noise. The fact that the T4i is down to $599 has me hoping that the 70D price won't be more than double that.

Hoping...

The 1Dsx will do for me provided Canon manage to leapfrog Nikons current world beating performance with the 800E. If they can achieve that, then I will be in heaven, if not, then its goodbye Canon. I'm not hanging about if they continue to produce cameras with noise and banding issues but with excessive ISO figures.

Having said that, my present 5DII is OK for the moment, so I would rather they spent more time getting it right than a rushed "knee jerk reaction".

Not everyone wants/needs high frames per second. When was the last time you shot a portrait at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time that you hot landscape at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time you shot table-top at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time you shot your vacation at 10 FPS ??

One of the things I've come to like on my Sony NEX-5n is touch screen focusing. An incredibly handy feature I'd like to see on the 70D.

Um, that's why there are multiple models being discussed as potential announcements this year.

Will the EOS M2 have useful features ??? Or will it be more of the same-old same-old from Canon :(

Canon worries about canniblization, but someone else will eat their lunch if they are not careful.

First company to release affordable mirrorless FF, will eat Canon's lunch for sure.

Sony is halfway there with their RX1. All that is missing now is a model with interchangable lens system.

Yes, but all the complaing centers on the alledged specs of the 70D :) the lowest cost DSLR being discussed :) not the 7D or 1DSx ;)
