My CR0 prediction.

70D
650D sensor
7D focus points
Digic5
5 to 6 FPS
wifi
gps
60D body

Not sure about the lens. Whatever it is, it will be probably out of my budget.

Nothing yet?  Doesn't look promising for tomorrow......usually we see something more specific by now....

I wonder if it could be another mirrorless camera or a lens for it? This a large market that Canon is almost absent in....., although I would have expected that at CES

I bet no equipment will come out tomorrow. The announcement will be about the Canon retail stores..

It is a CR1 rumor to keep you clicking. Why is this even a surprise that nothing major will come of this rumor... It is aterall a rumor site...not a "fact" site. 

Tomorrow, we will have a new headline "DSLR & lenses REALLY coming Feb 2...no no, we mean it this time" and you will be on the hook checking back.  :D

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.

Just so you know, there is no such thing as a body without "STM capability". Any Canon EOS camera can drive the STM motor, which is only better than a USM motor if you shoot video exclusively. If you shoot stills, STM is slow and unnecessary.

The T4i can do autofocus in video, but that has nothing to do with STM -- the autofocus in video is a feature of the camera body only and works with USM lenses too. The only difference is that STM is smoother (due to being slower to focus -- again, great for video, bad for stills).

of course, there could be new equipment announced at the first Canon store.... perhaps it is something with new sensor technology.... or perhaps it's something to compete with the micro 4/3 cameras, or perhaps to compete with things like GoPro's....... or perhaps we just get to play with the helium balloons and get to express our disapointment in high squeaky voices :)

No leaks = no announcement.

The next announcement opportunity is the CP+ show in Japan, Jan/31-Feb/3.
If there's a DSLR announcement coming, it will likely come on Jan 28-31.

Why would it be a 70D when the 7D is older?

possibly because they running out of stock on the 60D.... perhaps once stock gets low enough on the 7D we will hear something????

It's hard to tell if it's going to be the 70D or the 7DII. Either one is possible. 

The 60D is the 'weakest link' in Canon's lineup right now.
They need a strong seller at the $1K price point.
So, a new 70D priced at $900-1200 (USD) is a very good candidate for announcement - to boost sales.

The thing is, the 7D is selling for $1200 right now.
So, it's also possible that the 7DII might get announced first for $1600-1800, while the 7D remains on sale for $1200.
In this case the 60D will get discountinued until a replacement comes in the fall.

Nothing is certain, as we don't know what Canon's strategy is for their 1.6x lineup.

my guess is that canon 7d ii would be some where around canon 6d price...  let's see...  hopefully it will be announced by tomorrow... i am waiting for it (might upgrade my 7d to 7d mark ii)

Hmm, it's 4pm AEDT on the 15th - nothing yet.  I would have expected an announcement to be out by now....

if the 7DII comes out with the same poxy 18 MP APS-C sensor then there will be a flood of tears the likes of which the world has never seen...
