DIGIC V (no one has said it will get DIGIC 6)
With the rise of the new SX280 CANON officially has stated that DIGIC 5 is a technology of the past.
When releasing a new product the vendor is supposed to equip with its "best/newest" (officially released for other products) technology. If 70D is missing DIGIC6 then that would contribute to the bad image of CANON.
Things are even worser: the rumors are that the 7D2 would be with the 2 of the DIGIC 5s. Adding to that the modest DR that the current 1DX/5D3/6D CMOSs are capable of is very bad image for CANON.
Why do they continue with that low value for their customers in 2013? Year of versatile solutions from all competitors.
I don't want to be offered the same quality as someone buying lower class equipment targeted for the tourists:
18mp Sensor (Same as SL1).
I believe and HOPE that all that is only RUMORS. I am looking forward that both 70D & 7D2 will be with the newest and best CMOS and DIGIC technology.
