New DSLR at the End of March [CR2]
« on: February 28, 2013, 09:48:13 AM »

Replacement to 60D?

We’ve been hearing over the last few days about an announcement coming at the end of March, the exact date is unknown at this time. If I were a betting man, I’d say it’ll be the 19th or 26th of March, 2013.


We’ll see a new DSLR, most likely the replacement for the EOS 60D.


There’s no spec list to speak of yet, but we’re quite confident that the 70D will be a big step up from the 60D in terms of specs. We expect it to return to the level that the EOS 50D was at, especially in the build quality area. No more “super Rebel” for the XXD line. This will then push the 7D Mark II to a higher level as well.


No mention of lenses being announced, though we’ll probably see a few new PowerShots. At this time, no mention of a G1 X replacement.

Looking forward to the 70d - need to replace by wife's aged rebel XTi and would hate to buy her a 60d given its age.

Thanks Nikon. With your release of the D7100 you pushed Canon to release the 70D.

Now, please release your D400, I want a new 7DII.

Oh, if this is back to 50D with AFMA and metal body, I might choose this one over a 7D (depends on AF really). Hope it is available shortly after announced, so we don't have to wait until summer to get it.

Feels like after seeing the D7100 Canon feels it's time to release the 70D. I have no interest in such a camera, but I admit I'm curious to see what it will be like - and at what price.

Look at the 60D and the T3i.... the only real difference was that the 60D had better sealing, a faster burst rate, and a shoulder display. I can see Canon doing the same with a 70D and the T4i.....

Personally, I don't expect the 70D to be more than an incremental improvement. If you give it all the bells and whistles plus new sensor technology, where does that leave the 7D2 to differentiate itself? Didn't Canon say that the 7D2 was going to be "revolutionary"?

This falls in line with the earlier prediction by Nippon Camera Magazine

http://www.canonwatch.com/nippon-camera-magazine-predicts-next-canon-announcements-70d-t5i-eos-me-7d2-3d/

Essentially translates into:

Canon EOS 70D in March
Canon EOS Kiss X7i (Rebel T5i/EOS 700D) in June
Canon EOS Me (next mirrorless camera) in July
Canon EOS 7D Mark II in September
Canon EOS 3D (the mighty big megapixel DSLR) in October

Hmm.

Considering the lame 6D specs, I'm actually expecting that the 70D will get Rebel-ized even further.
I'd be glad to be wrong, though.

Would be nice if they up the spec level to the 'old' xxD line, I have fond memories of my 40D and still think the 60D build is inferior.

I think of new sensor, touchscreen and WiFi, that's it.

Damn... this will force the price of the 7D lower and lower, and I still can't sell it as I am waiting for the rumored 7DII (or the 5DIII if the 7DII underwhelms).
Wish the 7DII was released before the 70D (like 5DIII before 6D- so the 5DII prices didn't drop right away and people could do a 5D upgrade without losing much)...  :'(

I actually wouldn't be surprised if they basically made it a 7D with a swivel screen (and wifi/gps). They can still incorporate that screen into a 50D/7D style body.

I'm not expecting a new sensor, though it'll be really embarassing if they don't have a new one. Hopefully they roll out a new one that will trickle down to the T5i, and the 7DII gets its own special thing.
