Would it make sense for Canon to start a new "trifecta" of mirror-less cameras?  Say.. the new EF-M as the entry level, this newly announce Rebel as the mid-level, and possibly a full frame mirror-less at the high end.

Good stuff all around.

Canon should just keep the Rebel line instead of making a whole new other one.

yawn....
550D sensor and 9AF points? what's the point of this camera?
Don't we already have a 650D, EOS-M, 60D, 600D, 550D, etc with these same basic specs?
Canon has been super boring lately.
Canon EOS-M, 22mm f2, 11-22mm f4-5.6
Canon 550D, Sigma 50mm f1.4
Nikon D700, Nikon 24-70mm f2.8, Tamron 17-35mm f2.8-4

I agree though, if this super-entry-level, whatever it ends up being, has 6fps,  the 70D better have something worthwhile to be deemed 2-notches better.

It will probably have 9 cross types, where does that leave the 6D  :o

the 650d has 9 cross type, just like the 40d,50d,60d...so what?

Actually that was my point Canon's feature list has never been linear so it could easily have 6fps and not step on the 70D. I doubt it will though

Do they really need another Rebel?  They better had make the 70D something stellar...the lines are beginning to converge to closely.

Given the specs of the Rebel line are increasing, and the rumored specs for the 7D II are very good (mini-1DX anyone?), I suspect the 70D will reclaim the meaningful position the 50D held. The 7D I was really what started to blur the lines...and I think Canon is trying to reset the expectations of each line and reform the necessary divisions between them.

He he, still same old fuzzy sensor from 3 years old 550D. One step forward, three back. Wow. :P >:(
No good camera from Canon, no money from me. My next camera is Nikon D5200 or GH3. Bye bye Kanon  ;D :P

My 2cents: Canon seems to have hard time competing with mirrorless market, now they release small DSLR. How many crop DSLR do we really need?
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

Does any understand the market place for this type of camera?

Do rebel owners upgrade often (need to refresh the line to get trade ups) or is this to keep away of Nikon to get new camera buyers?

Canon's even having a harder time competing with Nikon.  D5200 seems one of the best amateur level APS-C camera ever made.  It's sensor performance is near the FF performance already...

That definitely makes sense and would make the whole line up more compelling.
