IF Canon doesn't tack an extra $1000 onto the price I think I have found my second body. If it is priced properly.

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$+

im quite intrigued by the spec list. i wonder about the ISO noise compared to 60D/7D. although i really hoped for a Digic6, since they already introduced it in a pocket camera.

Depending on the body quality, it looks indeed like the 70D will take the place of the current 7D in the Canon line-up

+1... kinda bummed with the wifi it likely wouldn't be full mag alloy, but maybe just maybe they'll prove me wrong...  touch screen and articulating screen i'm not bothered about... i do would like headphone jack output for video...  also if it can use the same battery as the 5d3/7d that would be great...
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

Hoping the new sensor has awesome high-ISO performance. Also hoping there's two card slots!

because APS-C are known for awesome high-ISO performance, right?

OK... the sensor is not the same_O, and it is boasted to have "exceptional...tonal range"

Now I'm interested.

(BTW... not to be too obvious but trying to be helpful -- click on the shot of the specs in the OP to expand the image -- the specs on the rhs are clearly legible.   Judging from some of the comments in this thread some folks have gotten so excited they didn't realize they could expand the image and read all the specs!)    8)

at least it's not a joke like the 60D; it looks likes a real XXD body

My only question here is not about the 70D itself, but about the (possible) 7Dii.
Not much room left between the 70D and the 6D/5Diii for the 7Dii ... unless the 7Dii would be something like a cropped 5Diii (around the same price as well though)
Any thoughts about that?

Very similar specs when compared to the 7D. I would have thought that this needs to be better than 7D in all aspects including fps.

needs just to be better than d7100 and with those specs probably it is

They aren't, currently. But what if the 70D changed that?

So...20 MP, one more stop of native ISO vs. the 60D/7D, the 7D's phase detect AF system, hybrid AF on the image sensor, 7 fps, WiFi, and still uses the LP-E6.

i thought it said "iso 12,800 maximum" which is not told whether or not this one is a native iso right? or this one is its native iso, and h1, h2 iso will be higher numbers? however, i have been waiting for my 7d mark ii for a while already... where is my 7d mark ii...  >:(

It says it is 12,800 native, plus 25,600 extended (click to magnify and you can read the fine print)
35+ years of Canon gear...good grief! Still have 2 FTb cameras in working order, too!

Feels like it's been a long, long wait.

Looks like this product may be the equal of all the talk/speculation here over the past couple of years. And now only four more days to wait.

I hope it's as good as it looks.
