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.

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.
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

Slow week at CR?  Yet another CR1's to pass the time?  ;)
What happened to the Jan 8th 35L II and 14-24L UWA from last week?  :P

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

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

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.
