while number of shots in a 1 or 2 second burst will be higher than the 7D I bet the total shots in a 4 or 5 second burst will still be higher on a 7D.

Hmm? Why would 1 or 2 seconds at 7fps be higher than the 7D's 8fps? I can shoot 25 RAW before the buffer fills up on my 7D, meaning the 7D will win for the first 3ish seconds... but after that, the only way the 70D is going to win is if its buffer is deeper.

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.

Is one a full frame body and the second a smaller, lighter body as a backup?

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.

The 7D was always more Pro-targeted than consumer.

Based on the high res still seems like it will be single SD card. Figured if it were dual slot with CF option they would advertise that.

Wish there were updated info on a 7d mk ii spec sheet and timeline/availability. CF card is important for higher resolution of raw video.

If only Canon would give you AFMA on the 70D  :'(

Canon wouldn't needlessly take away a feature like that, would they?  No, they won't.  They already did that to the 60D.  This time, they'll do nothing of the sort.





By which I mean, do nothing.  As in, not add it back in.   ::)  But maybe they'll surprise us - the did give the 5DIII the AF from the 1-series, after all.  So there's hope.  Faint hope, but hope nonetheless.
I"m not so sure about that.  I think they may very well add it back into the xxD line.  The 50d had it and I think they heard a lot of complaints when they dropped it from the 60D. 

I have a feeling they are going to try and bring a little bit of that xxd line back into the line... like the magnesium in the body, etc...  Hoping for those that want it anyway!

Gives some hope that with a fairly substantial upgrade for this from the 60D, the 7D MKII may be fairly substantial upgrade as well!

Hope springs eternal!  ;)

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

It's just you.  There's clearly a zero in the name.   :P
Indeed!  Quite clearly!

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!
I'm with you Don, I think it will be a fairly significant bump.  It makes sense with what they're doing to this one.

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.
FPS is great on this compared to the 60d... Also why would it need to be better than a 7d?    That's where the 7D MKII  will come in, no?

It has to be better than a 60d and it would seem to be significantly so!  :)

This post has really got my attention... thanks CR.  I'm quite impressed at the 70D specs listed. They are not 'unreasonable' - as in, re-using the already very good 7D's AF, and some other improvements (eg LiveView AF, articulating screen, WiFi, etc).  The new '5 times quicker' contrast detect AF sounds particularly useful in some applications (I wonder if that only applies to STM, and how much other lenses, eg USM - also benefit?)

As I have a 7D - and love that camera - it does give me hope that a very good improvement is around the corner for the 7DmkII.... as that will probably be my next camera.  Because I use the 7D for all my photography needs - from landscape to macro to wildlife to events to casual sports and portrait - an improvement in the sensor (namely lower noise and better DR) will be come.

I have taken so many great photos - even landscapes and portraits - don't let someone tell you an APS-C can't produce stunning photos in those genres, even though FF will naturally have an advantage there... the quality of the final result is more about lighting, composition and knowing how to use one's equipment - including great lenses.

I'm looking forward to seeing photos soon - that were produced by the 70D - ie Canon's exciting new 'camera-on-the-block'! Yay for technological improvements.  Roll on 7DmkII.

a happy Paul :)
I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

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.

The heft and feel of the 7D body is just ... wonderful. You need to live with one to appreciate it.

BUT, I agree with you, MA over MAG.  ;D

If a discounted 7D is not much more expensive than the new 70D, which would you choose?

Refurbs from the canon store can be had for < $1,000. I'd bet the new 70D is more expensive than that... my decision would probably depend on IQ from this new sensor.

Agreed, the best thing about the 70D spec list is what it silently says about the 7D Mark II

So nobody has made any mention or comparison (from a spec perspective) to a 6D?

I have been waiting ages for a APS-C update to compare with a 6D for an upgrade from my 500D. The big concern for me is the AF of the 6D, so if this has the AF of the 7D then I would be pretty happy.

I assume the 70D will be slightly less than a 6D as well.

Thoughts?

Oops. My stupid is showing - mentally I had the frame-rates reversed.     Yes the 7D will win at any duration over the 70D.   I bet that the 70D will have a significantly smaller buffer than the 7D and will get painful after only a couple of seconds.   I think this will be a key feature to keep 7Ds still moving into sports shooter hands until the 7Dii comes out.
