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

So, it's also possible that the 7DII might get announced first for $1600-1800, while the 7D remains on sale for $1200.

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....

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

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.

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...

LOL I bet the 70D will be this

same ol crap 18 MP APS-C sensor
Plastic body with flippy screen and pop up flash
11 pt AF from 6D
wifi
GPS
single SD card
VF? maybe the same 97% as the 6D

+1

Am I the only that thinks the 6D should have been called the 8D? Seems to me the 7D will have a much more professional feature set and maybe even be priced higher than the 6D, thus should have a lower model number...
EOS-5D Mk.iii

K-amps, completely agree with you! It seems that Canon EOS 6D is cripled 5D Mark III and EOS 7D :) This model is aboslutely ridiculous and it is very clear that marketing department in Canon should be fired for such product!

Or we could say that the 6D is a smaller 5DII with expanded feature set and better high-ISO IQ, metering, AF, etc....
Current Kit: Some cameras and a bunch of lenses, maybe even a tripod or two
