To me this forum is mostly humor. In a nice kind of way.

Serious yes, but humor/rumor (it rhymes!) more.

and nothing wrong with smilies...  ::)
+1 for humor.
+1000 for sharing...

Personally, I was very pleased with the 60D...
Give the 70D AFMA and better high ISO performance and it would be a winner for me.
Unfortunately, I fear that canon uses AFMA (amongst other things) to push serious users higher up the ladder...
I was just in the local canon dealership to see if they showed any tells or tics when asked about upcoming stuff, but either they are very good p0ker players or else they are in the dark like us...

Well, at least it is a Tuesday...;-) So, looking forward to a CR3 for a 14-24 announcement. If not, I will get the 16-35 sometime later this year and will get at least some decent CR2s every now and then.  8)

Yep - XS-Pro is what you want.

7D Mark II - [CR1], unanounced

With every last Canon camera iteration people expected "new sensor tech" but were disappointed: 650d, 5d3, 6d... as each new lens is surely "THE" lens like the upcoming 14-24L.

But realistically, Canon is more about incremental updates than big leaps, and the really useful stuff is sure to end up in a high-end and/or very expensive body first coupled with a healthy early adopters premium.

7D2 - top of the range crop no?
Top of the range pro is all about reliability and getting the job done is that really the best place to test out new sensor tech? I'd have thought something around the 7D would be about right. Hey what do I know only having fun it is rumours after all  :P

OMFG, I really love this forum.  This may be my favorite stream yet.  So, my guess is, if the rumor is correct, an xxD body with STM capability and a new STM lens.  Makes sense that STM will get beefed up and that feature sets will expand while the STM lens family grows in the direction of prosumer needs.  But I may be wrong!  Someone please hand my a$$ to me and wax eloquently on the subject of my ignorant stupidity.

Back-up prediction - a blandish xxD and the 14-24mm, or maybe a rush to announce a 35mm f/ 1.4 to respond to respond to the apparently sweet new Sigma 35mm f/1.4.

I love Canon cameras and lenses, and I love all you Canonite/Canonista fans/lurkers/trolls. Happy belated New Years to you all.

If you want to die laughing, look up any thread about the 7D, or even aps-c vs fullframe. The poor 7D gets bashed to infinity. The 7D mk II will probably also get bashed to infinity, unless it is aps-h, in which case only half of the bashers will bsh, but they will bash twice as much. If it is full frame, the bashers will stop bashing, then they will look at the price tag, and then there will be a thousand dark threads blackening the sky with the smoke of their "Canon charges too much" bashing.

oh dont be like that I enjoy the APS-H vs APS-C sparing with you guys ;) :P

Just a day and some hours for the 15th. This will be interesting. Whatever camera it is I hope there are some noticeably upgrades.

EOS 70D - old sensor tech
7D Mark II - new sensor tech

I agree, 7D mk2 should have a new sensor because with an old but upgraded sensor, it wouldn't be saleable.

700D will be announced this summer, with the same old sensor 550D had, it wouldn't also be saleable.

Think about 70D... its life cycle is 2-2.5 years. Who would buy it in 2014, especially after the 700D if it would have the same old sensor?

My bet:
- Canon will release the new, ~25MP ASP-C sensor this year, with more focus points on the sensor compared to 650D
- 7D mk2 will get this sensor with a DIGIC5+/dual DIGIC5/+ processor
- 70D will get this sensor with a single DIGIC5 processor (maybe 5+ but I don't think so), just like 650D has
- 700D will get the new sensor
- 7D mk2 will be the "king" of ASP-C, with a performance like 5D mk3, with enhanced movie AF but no flip but touch screen (not sure)
- 70D will be a "bigger" 700D with some extra functions (bigger buffer, better battery, faster shutter, etc) with enhanced movie AF and flip/touch screen, maybe movie digital zoom feature
- 700D will get a slower shutter, smaller battery, smaller buffer, slower movie AF, no movie digital zoom, etc

Any other option would be a failure by Canon because these ASP-C sensors are 3.5 years old!

That's what people said about the 650d, but a 7d2 with more precise af, 10 fps, less banding, gps, wifi, maybe swivel screen, many more juicy firmware features (af @f8, multishot, 7x bracketing, better afma, ...) - doesn't that make your mouth water? :->

Any other option would be a failure by Canon because these ASP-C sensors are 3.5 years old!

Not really, the 18mp sensor on the 650d (phase detect pixels) is different form the aged 7d (more banding). But if you look at the reviews, the 650d has some more capability for highlight recovery, so Canon goes on tweaking their current tech just like 5d2->5d3->6d.

I totally agree ... I think some folk are born to crib (I mean bash  ;D), I saw a thread in here where people were cribbin and finding faults about a lens cap that costs less than $2 ... I can imagine how bent outta shape they will be when they see the 7D II price tag. ;D
