It really looks like a complete re-alignment of the APS-C line

Mirrorless - EOS-M
Compact - EOS-B
Entry - T5i
Enthusiast - 70D
Pro - 7D2

With the specs of the T5i, the 70D was to be at least as good, probably better build, shoulder display, Digic 6, and slightly faster. If the 7D2 is going to be better than the 70D it's going to be a kick-ass little camera

I doubt it's already time for a digic6....

The reason the T4i is not that good is beacuase of the video AF fail.  Can anyone tell from the leaked specs whether the video AF will be fixed?  If just this one very important feature is fixed, that is enough to justify a new model.  Otherwise, I sat on the fence with the t4I, will stay on the fence with the t5I, too.
I assume you are angry that it doesn't smoothly track moving objects? If so, expect to be unimpressed with future offerings for the next decade. The shallowness of the DOF makes creating a useable video AF nearly impossible. The camera has to decide which high contrast area to focus on when there are numerous options and then smoothly transition to the correct one. Except then people will complain its slow, so it makes those transitions fast, thus looking jerky.

Basically, the AF tracking system of Canon's most expensive DLSR (at $6k) can lock focus on an object at 12fps for several seconds. Yet, a good video AF would have to do the same at 30fps or 60fps for minutes at a time. Ain't gonna happen on a <$1000 DSLR. If you want video AF, you want a camcorder with a small sensor.

Or a Sony alt camera... Translucent mirror works wonders for video.

like the EOS-B  edited to Powershot SX280 HS? If it's out there, I can see it going into the 70D and a pair of them into a 7D2. They probably left the digic5 in the T5i to make the upgrade simpler..... software and improved sensor.... no new circuit boards or re-tooling.

Excuse me, where did you read of the eos-b having a digic6? Or any other camera, for that matter?

No earth-shaking, radical changes.....but we didn't expect that, did we?  For someone looking for a first DSLR and wanting a shiny new model, this will be a fine camera, as will the EOS-b.  T2i, T3i, 60D and T4i owners will still be happy with their existing gear and perhaps nudged toward 6D if they want significantly higher IQ without too much financial strain.  I suspect those who are still okay with crop sensors and want to go higher end (price) will be somewhat pleased with the (fabled) 70D and very pleased with the expected-to-be-suprisingly-expensive 7DII.  I'm somewhat in the 6D camp, I have more use for WiFi than the wonderful 5DIII AF.

Digic 6 processor, when such a processor exists, will only appear in a "professional" model with a "professional" price tag...

May be not for a PowerShot, but I am seriously considering trading for a small footprint RX1 and the new 24-70II... 

Now if this PowerShot sings and dances like that frog from bugs bunny cartoons...I'll get on it right away! ;)

I don't believe this spec for the t5i unless it has some bonus features like gps (and wifi) not listed in the rumored spec, or if the sensor is somehow significantly improved, though still 18 mp.    Canon is known for warmover models -- but this spec T5i is too close to the T4i even for Canon.    I could believe T5i = T4i + GPS, maybe.

We'll see soon enough and then we can get back to serious rumormongery for the 70D and 7D mkII!

Wow, the new 18-55mm kit lens doesn't have that ludicrous trapezoid shape the old on did. It actually looks more pro.  ::)

Agreed, it looks a lot better. The lens at least gets a thumbs up (for style)  ;)
