So beside the 1D serie (X, C and future big mega pixel body), i see the canon classification with this new 70D as the equivalent apsc body line to the 6D full frame body line and th future 7D Mark II or 8D (some mention that name) as the equivalent apsc body line to the 5D Mark III...

I hope that 70D will use Cf card, i ordered today a new one ;)

at least it's not a joke like the 60D; it looks likes a real XXD body
can you name those apparent differences? i cant tell. im serious. in my eyes, it actually looks somewhat small

I agree, look at photos of the 70D compared to the 60D/7D bodies - 70D looks pretty much identical to the 60D from what I can see.  Looks like they share the same bottom height and layout, profile, etc.
Current Kit: Some cameras and a bunch of lenses, maybe even a tripod or two

I'd much rather have AMFA than a magnesium body. I haven't heard of anyone having a problem with the body on the 60D- not sure why people are so insistent on that as a feature.  I wouldn't mind some degree of weather sealing though.

 I'm hoping this is $1400 or less, but knowing Canon I'll probably be disappointed.

This is a really nice upgrade for my 60D however. I'll probably bite if the price is right.

And yeah, I think this suggests the 7DII is going to have insane specs and price.

edit: I wonder if the battery packs are the same, whether a 60D grip will work on the 70D?

Agreed and prices should also reflect that unfortunately

This seems like a perfect second body camera to me. It has the specs I was hoping for, wich very rarely happen when Canon anounce anything. But will probably last a year before the price drop down to anything reasonable.

I can confirm that I never had any issue with my 60D body bought on release, except the fact that the rubber grip is ungluing from the body itself and I can't glue it since it has expanded and is now larger than it was :(

And by then the 7Dii might be out :p

I think AFMA must be present in this class. It I need to choose, I'd choose AFMA.

According to this http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/06/eos-70d-next-to-be-announced/ -- admittedly older --, the grip will be the BG-E14.

Of course, that could just be a BG-E9 stamped with a new number ...

Here in Asia, brand new 7D price is already below what the 60D was when it first came out, and used prices for a 7D are close to what a new 60D goes for now. So these rumored specs actually make sense, if Canon wants to sell new bodies it has to be almost as good as the old 7D at the very least. Updated features like wifi are just icing on the cake.

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)

Excellent points!

The only way I can see a 7DII in Canon's future is if it is targeted more at pros than consumers.
This means a sensor optimized for high ISO (rather than more megapixels), really fast fame rate (10 fps?), better AF system (more than 19 AF points), etc..

Such a camera will surely be expensive, as it won't be targeted as consumers anymore.
A $2000 price tag won't surprise me one bit.

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)

With these extensions in native ISOs I dare to guess, that the next 5D might present 51k or even 102k as native ISO and very usable 204k based on new sensor tech and fast procesors.

...This can only mean only one of two things.... that the 7D line is to be discontinued...

+1
I think there no will be a 7DII at least Nikon release a D400.

Semi-random thoughts:

Obviously Canon was B.S.ing when they said they couldn't have both a pop up flash and wi-fi on the 6D.

Interesting that they include wi-fi but apparently not GPS.

A 20.2 MP sensor with at least one full stop improved ISO performance is great news to me. Of course, it depends on what the test results show, but if it holds up, I would be very pleased with an extra stop in a 7D.

Very pleased with the LP-E6 Battery. No new battery and charger for the 7DII.

This seems to confirm what I've expected for quite some time: 6D is to 70D as the 5DIII is to the 7D II. I'll expect the 7D will have better weathersealing, better autofocus, faster frame rate and dual card slots (one of each). 

It will have AFMA – Canon decided it wasn't worth the grief not to include it, even though only a tiny fraction of users care.

I predict this will retail at introduction in the $1,200 to $1,400 range (right where the Nikon D7100 is). That leaves plenty of room for the 7DII at $1,600 to $2,100.

Glad they are putting touch-screen on this. It's the future. People might as well get used to it.
