51 point AF, $1199 for the body, 100% view finder coverage, magnification 0.73, 24.1MP @6fps
This camera is going to wipe the floor with the 70D.
Sad, but so true.
I'm really happy I left the Canon ship a while ago and got a D700. Nikon is killing it recently.
I think other's are wrong though comparing this camera to the 60D/70D line, isn't that more comparable to the D5200?
The sad thing is that Nikon is basically dominating all matchups(definitely on the lower end), at least in terms of specs, public perception(I understand pros love Canon for a reason, etc, i'm just saying.)
It could be that Canon heard the specs of this camera and delayed or changed the 70D launch to switch it up a little bit(maybe/maybe not possible.) Because based on the rumored "incremental update" of the 70D, it isn't even close.
Canon would be wise to match the 70D to the D7100 spec wise, and then release the 7DII against the mythical D400, with all the above, fully weather sealed, metal body, AFMA, crazy AF, and 10FPS at around $2000 to grab the pro APS-C market.
