I don't think it matters what kind of sensor they put in it (unless it's a Sony) and what specs it will have, it will still receive only hate and disappointment from a certain group of people that frequent this forum. Probably combined with some whining about the lack of a 14-24mm in the lens line up.
They remind me of the old/worn out Gramophone records that keep repeating the same tune over and over again.

;D I try to stay positive, if I feel Canon doesn't make products for me I would simply turn somewhere else. I think they're doing a fantastic job in a very complex market. Many of their products have an overlapping user base stretching from almost beginners to experienced pros.

Am I the only that thinks the 6D should have been called the 8D?
Yes, you are the only one  ;D

I would like to see a 7D Mark II with two cf card slots and a new EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS II lens and a 1Ds X.

The 70D will be hit the market with a 18-135 IS kit lens and a sensor around 20 megapixels.

If Canon don´t fix the problems with the APS-C 24/25 megapixel sensor, then we will see only a APS-C sensor around 20/21 megapixel in the 7D Mark II.

Why two CF card slots? It only makes it more expensive to buy memory cards for the camera. No reason for it. Maybe one of each as in the 5D3 for those who likes CF.

Are you implying that Canon would launch 7D2 and 70D with different sensors? Based on what?

Dual CF cards for backup and peace of mind and to avoid the poor write performance issues of the 5d Mk III when shooting fast bursts with a CF and SD card.  Dual CF cards would be a definite plus.

thenewcamera.com 70d specification new rumor: http://thenewcamera.com/canon-70d-specification-rumor/

ASP-C
20.2 MP (effective)
DIGIC 5
ISO 100-6400, expandable to 12800
LCD: 3.0"
additional features: dustproof, real-time viewfinder electronic level

sounds interesting... seems like new sensor, but lower maximum ISO than on 650D?

I hope they avoid CF or at least make it SD capable also seeing how I have about 50 something gigs worth of SD cards and that much CF would cost a nice little chunk of change.  If speed is the issue maybe they will use a faster SD slot this time meeting the newest standards.

Shooting with both brands helps quell the frustration when one brand doesn't fill a need. It's not that much more expensive if you don't overlap your lenses. I shoot with two cameras anyway so why not make one of them a Nikon. Right now, I have a 5D2 and D800E and will most likely sell my D3x. Perfect companions (well, a 5D3 would make a better companion but I am waiting for the 39 MP, 46 MP, 50 MP, whatever MP monster from Canon before deciding). Canon gives me the 24-70 II, 70-200/4 IS, TSE-17 and 100L Macro and Nikon the 14-24G and 24-70G (purchased well before the fantastic 24-70 II was released) and of course high resolution with the D800E.

Sounds to me like a smart approach and confusing for some members on this forum and maybe on some of the Nikon forums... Im just an amateur and use only one body, 5D3. Happy so far with what I get with Canon and I would be financially retarded to change brand in my current situation  ;) . But you get the best of the two it seems.

If that ISO rumor is right then Canon will be kicking themselves. I'm not buying this rumor. Can't imagine the lower lever camera (T4i) having better ISO performance than their higher counterpart. Once you get above the Rebel line the buyer is more aware of the performance spec's instead of the features list. They want better performance and not just more toys on a camera. I expect at least a 12800 ISO on the 70D and 7D II when released. If they don't make a significant IQ improvement then these two cameras will loose sales. JMO

Good grief, it's about usable iso settings, what good would 6d-like settings do if all you get is noise? If you are so desperate for noisy pictures, just shoot @iso12800 on crop and underexpose -3ev...

... I'd be happy if Canon would end the marketing race in both the mp and iso setting category but just release sensors with more dr and 2 stops better iso than now.

Yea, but marketing is everything. I rarely took shots above ISO 1600, but an option of very high ISO is welcome for rare situations. But, if 70D's ISO 6400 is much better than 650D's e.g. ISO 1600, then I don't care how it's called:)

I don't think this spec can be taken seriously, because the spec for 70D/7Dmk2 a few weeks ago from a Japanese newspaper differed in both sensor resolution (24MP?) and ISO (25600?). I'd take that more seriously.

No need for the "Good grief"  ;D I don't recall anybody saying they were desperate for noisy pictures. Not sure where you conjured up that idea from.  ;D  I clearly said they they will need to improve IQ or sales will drop.  If you understood you would realize that the higher unusable max ISO rating they give will mean a higher usable ISO which means a cleaner low ISO. That is the way it works. Anytime they clean up the low end it will give them the ability to go higher. If they can go higher they will definitely use that number to boost sales. I never shoot above ISO 1600 now because of IQ and very seldom shoot above ISO 500. It would be very nice to have good clean pictures in the 1600- 3200 range for very low light wildlife shooting and super clean shots below that. Sorry if you got so touchy because I am not buying the rumor you posted. It's just rumor talk. Take a chill pill, relax and have fun.  ;D  Keep in mind high mp and ISO ratings sell cameras and that is all any of these companies want, To sell products!
