So the 70D is a good step ahead.... autofocus with 19 cross points and 5Xfaster live view.... a bump up in ISO and # of pixels... WiFi..... This makes the 7D a very lame duck... perhaps even a dead duck...
This can only mean only one of two things.... that the 7D line is to be discontinued, or that the 7D2 will be a SIGNIFICANT step up over the 7D... I'm hoping for the latter!
What's not clear about 70D yet:
- AFMA is present or not
- body is magnesium alloy or not
- SD card slot speed
I think 7d2 will have magnesium-alloy body, focus system of 5d3 or closer to that, dual memory slot, digic 6/6+, 1080p@60fps, even a new sensor and everything 70D has. So, 7d2 will be more of a high-end ASP-C.
But I speculate 70D will be priced high, 1200$+
