Exactly! To be honest, I wouldn't mind if my 5D III was 18 MP (without hearing it would be 22.3).
And 6.5 fps is a big improvement on the 60D's frame rate.

And to hear it has a magnesium alloy body? Wow, why is everyone being so ungrateful about it.  If these are true, then these are good upgrades.
Yeah, though the AF will be telling. If they give it something similar to the 19pt system, then it's basically a single Digic V version of the 7D, which ain't too shabby. Of course, if they give it the usual 9pt AF sytem, it'd make me worried for what the 7dII will end up getting

Hmm, I don't buy it.
This rumor looks like it's been put together from previous rumors.


you picked up on that?  sorry I couldn't resist a friendly jab:  As stated,  "Below is a spec list put together from various sources that have written in."  nice analysis, though,  esp for not knowing it was a platypus rumor lol

Depending on what real-world autofocus performance is like, this could give the current 7D a run for its money the same way the 6D bests the 5DII.

And all y'all complaining about the megapickle count? You're just being silly.

Eighteen megapickles is a great sweet spot for APS-C. The only reason you need more is if you're going to print big -- big enough that your printer will take paper by the three-foot-wide roll and ink by the gallon. And if you're printing that big, there's no point in shooting with APS-C in the first place; you need at least 135 format, if not larger.

All more megapickles gets you with APS-C is slow post-processing.

Cheers,

I'm hoping the complaints are about how good the MP are, not how many of them there are.   "18MP" sounds too much like they are four years old.

Fairly surprised there won't be duel slots or some of the other nice to have's found on the nikon d7100. The magnesium body's kind of neat though.

Here's to hoping the AF system gets more than one cross-type AF point.

I also agree, that 18mpx is enough. But seeing 20 wouldn't hurt. After selling my 7D to obtain a 5Dmk3, I'm in sore need of a crop body. I didn't like the rebels feel at all. Gues I'm a bit spoiled. I will wait and see on this one since I'm good with my 5Dmk3 for now and if it doesn't live up to the hype in IQ where it counts most for me, I will wait for a 7Dmk2 for Chrismas.

For those bitching about 18MP, I'd like to get me one of those 18MP 1DX thingies.....

6.5 fps will definitely attract a lot of people.

This sounds like a sweet upgrade from the 60D.  I bought the 50D over the 60D because of the body-design and materials. Even though it was lower-spec in some ways. Add WiFi, GPS, weather-sealing, 6.5fps and Digic 5? I'd seriously consider it if I wanted a crop-camera..

Exactly.

It is full of the latest "bling" that consumers crave - who cares if it takes good pictures or not, just as long as they're better than my iPhone.

The two things I'd be most interested in on a 70D would be is it better in low light and what kind of focusing system will it have.

Seems like the XXD line is back on track.

+1 and built better than an iPhone, because one day we'll all shoot photos in the middle of a blizzard, lol. One of my cameramen dropped his 60D from a 20 foot jib over a year ago because the plate was loose, still works today. That's just another story on top of many survived situations in a "normal" setting.

Add the 19 pt AF system from the 7D to this and it would fly off the shelves. (I would like digic 6, better hi-ISO, and wide-tele AFMA also). If these things come through, the 70D will be many peoples choice instead of the 7D.
