I'd go 6D if finances aren't an issue.

If finances were not an issue,
 
pair of 1Dx, another 5DM3, 500 and 600 F4 II, ..  If only money grew on trees and I had one of those trees

I have rarely followed the release of a new canon camera that closely before but am considering buying a 70D when it comes as a back up to my 5D MK III. If it was announced on March 21st (or 22nd) what is the soonest that it could be delivered? Does this process usually take more than a month or two? Sorry for my lack or knowledge of these things.

I ask because up till last week I was going to purchase a 60D but now that seems like a waste of money if the new one is coming out.

That's a hard one to say.... Remember the powershot N, anounced January 7, still not in stores.....

I have seen everything from on sale the day it was anounced to lenses that were anounced 2 years ago and we still have not seen.

My guess would be about a month or two delay between announcement and release.

A month or two if we're lucky, I know about the Tsunami, production issues, etc.  But Nikon has new equipment shipping almost immediately after they announce it.  Canon, a much larger company with far greater resources can't seem to release anything on time.  I just don't get it.

I'm waiting for the 70D release because Canon MUST have an all new sensor by now.  I can't imagine them going with the same 18MP sensor they've been using since 09, but I've been wrong before....

I am hoping for a 70D with:
  • Metal body like 50D
  • AFMA wide-tele
  • GPS and Wifi
  • Scroll wheel and joystick
  • 19 point AF from 7D
  • New sensor 20-24 MP
  • Digic V+
  • Fixed screen and weathersealing
  • USB 3 port
  • pop-up flash (master)
  • Form Factor slightly bigger than 60D

Like someone said, basically a 2013 version of 7D. Leaving room for a baby 1DX as 7D2. :)

True ... but historically it has been the other way around i.e. Canon products were available at stores much faster than Nikon, but lately it seems to be the other way around ... if I am not wrong this seems to have started ever since they first announced the EF 200-400 lens.

I'm waiting for the 70D release because Canon MUST have an all new sensor by now.  I can't imagine them going with the same 18MP sensor they've been using since 09, but I've been wrong before....

Finally, something official to deal with! One would hope it would be the 7D Mark II, though.

<strong>UPDATE</strong><br />

Invites appear to have gone out for March 21, 2013 in the Czech Republic, the invite can be seen below.</p>
<p>A Thursday announcement day is a bit different. Most announcement days I can remember are either on a Tuesday or a Friday. I’ll probably see more invites in the coming days that will clarify the date.</p>

<p>and another invitation for March 22, 2013.</p>

<p><strong>Canon EOS 70D Coming?</strong><br />

A few places are mentioning March 22, 2013 as an announcement date for Canon. We’re expecting the new Canon EOS 70D to be announced, and it will be a big step up from the EOS 60D in terms of technology.</p>
<p>Also expect some lower end PowerShots to be announced on the same day as the EOS 70D. There is no word on a lens announcement.</p>
<p><strong>Source: [<a href=\"http://photorumors.com/2013/03/06/canon-announcement-on-march-22-eos-70d/\" target=\"_blank\">PR</a>]</strong></p>
<p><strong><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">c</span>r</strong></p>


The two dates make a lot sense. The time difference between prague and japan is 8 hours. if the announcement is made in prague at 10 pm at 3/21 in japan it is 6 am at 3/22

70D
video:
Real 1080p
60p at 1080p
almost non-exist moire and aliasing
swivel screen

stills:
AFMA
6fps
more and more sensitive AF points

misc:
better weather sealing
new sensor with one stop better noise performance at all ISOs

If they can put this out with a price under $1500 for the 70D, it will make a big splash. I would buy it in an instant.

By the way. If this had been a Nikon event, and new Nikon gear were to be announced, it would already be revealed at Nikonrumors, with pics and info.

Why is Nikon so much better at leaking their stuff?

Some years ago, it seemed like Canon was deliberately leaking material, often in the form of what looked like entire press briefs. This meant that photography news websites that were subject to NDAs were regularly being scooped by rumours websites, blogs, etc. Word has it that remonstrations were made to Canon about this and over time, the tap has significantly dried up.
