Is it just me or does that look like 7D to me?

No, it's not just you  8).

Except for the articulating LCD, this is basically the 7D ... with a new sensor.

This makes me wonder what form the 7d2 will take...if the XXD series inherits the old AF...does the 7d2 get the 1dx AF?

I've been waiting for the 70D to replace my 40D for what seems like ages. Specs pretty much all I could wish for; would have liked GPS as well as/instead of WiFi. AFMA and a magnesium body would be nice too, but overall I'm happy, at least until I see the price ;)

One thing I think I can tell from the picture is that it has the 60D's slightly taller flash (vs the 7D) and probably the same 96% coverage pentaprism as the 60D.

My other bets are that the 70D will have a single SD card and not a terribly deep buffer.  I think this will be a key feature to keep 7Ds still moving into sports shooter hands until the 7Dii comes out.

Still, a very nice camera and it gets me excited for the 7Dii.

That seemed to be the rumors before. The 7D II was going to be "like a mini 1D X with APS-C". If the prior rumors hold true, that means 61pt AF, 10fps, and a 24.1mp sensor. The 70D sounds like a nice replacement for the 7D in the same price range as it's been selling for the last year or so...$1300-$1400. It also makes room for something along the lines of an APS-C 1D X in the price range of $2200 (give or take).

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.

I'm thinking the 7DII might be an APS-C 1DX.

My 2cents for 7D II:

1. 1D X AF system
2. 10fps
3. Solid body, similiar to 5D III
3. wifi etc
4. ISO same as rumor 70D or a bit better
5. Sensor technology same as 1D X  or 5D III - crop size with Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors
6. More poweful battery

that would kind of rock...not sure what other way they could take it with the 7d2 without making it completely irrelevant.  Mini 1dx with a price tag between $2000-2500

I think the wife was a typo & he meant wifi.  If so, Id be interested once the price settles down (although dual digic 6s would be more interesting).  If its not a typo and somehow a new wife is included w/ da kit-I'll pass. Already have a couple of those & I'm not really interested in a replacement/upgrade right now.
still a 5D2 fan

Depends on how much of an upgrade the wife is  ;) ...this feature may not go over so well with female shooters though (Well, unless they swing that way!)...

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

The dimensions do appear more like a 50D than a 60D, the new camera is definitely taller, at least with respect to width, than the 60D, and the shoulder bearing the function dial is flatter, like the 50D.  It is of course speculation, but this could be the return the the more rugged semi-pro body, although if it was, you would think the package would list that as a feature.  Then again, the original 50D box didn't list magnesium frame as a feature either.
