I had a 60D and I really like it.  I'm buying a 50D as a backup for AFMA purposes and because I don't need a video, and I'm not sure if I would be tempted to get a 70D.  Let's say in 3 years I find a really nice package with lenses and printers and I sell it all off so the 70D body only costs $300... yes it would be a nice addition, but I don't know that I would want it as a backup.  It is better... but I almost would opt for a 7D as the next logical backup option. 

As a quick aside... I think is a very suitable replacement to the 60D.  It doesn't have everything, but it is definitely worth making the upgrade from the tXi line... in my opinion at least.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

XS->60D->5d Mkiii:18-55->24-105L:75-300->55-250->70-300->70-200 f4L USM->70-200 f/2.8L USM->70-200 f/2.8L IS Mkii:50 f/1.8->50 f/1.4->100L->85mm f/1.8 USM-> 8mm ->100L & 85L

I'm a bit disappointed that there is no GPS.

I find geotagging to be a useful feature. I know others may not agree.

the quality of the new sensor will be the key!

i´m a long time canon shooter, but couldn´t help myself to recommend a friend, who was looking for a good midrange body to go with nikon. nikon´s sensor quality is so much better at the moment. from 14ev dynamic-range to 3/4 ev more in high iso. autofocus is better anyway...

but let´s hope, that canon is done with "oldtimer"-sensor technology.

at least I am sick and tired of waiting for a competitive sensor.

we´ll see.
40D (2x) / 70-200 2,8 / 17-55 2,8 / sigma 18-35 1,8 / 85 1,8 /  5 ettl-flashes / yn-622 ttl-triggers ....

Great specs I think. 70D, 7DII, 3D ... will 2013 be The Canon year ? If so, it might be the year I end up with all my remaining piggy banks smashed up ...   :-X

Somehow I suspect if this sensor was better than the Nikon equivalent, we would be hearing a lot more about it. I'll be happy if it's noticeably better than the 60D, and within spitting distance of the Nikon.

Hi,
   Not sure why so many people in the forum said that Nikon sensor is better than Canon... I compare them from the images in imaging resource and found there is no significant visual different... in fact, IMHO, Canon high ISO is slightly better with more details.

  Anyway, previous xxD spec is now xxxD spec and 7D spec is now xxD spec, so if there is a 7DII, it'll be close to the 1D spec... hopefully, the price is not....  ;)

  Have a nice day.

If canon wants to at all compete with the d7100 this needs to be at least partially magnesium alloy with some level of weather sealing. In any case, I'm totally excited. Time to start saving...

This looks awesome. Seems like not even the haters can find something wrong with this one.

 ...
My experience, head-to-head with a friend's SONY a77, is that the SONY sensor really does have a usable 1600 iso, which my 7D does not.

Like others have said in several threads, its all about the high iso performance of the new sensor.

I hope this will change.

it´s not the question of having an opinion. it´s the (scientific) numbers that count:

here are the numbers:
http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Compare-Camera-Sensors/Compare-cameras-side-by-side/%28appareil1%29/865|0/%28brand%29/Nikon/%28appareil2%29/663|0/%28brand2%29/Canon/%28appareil3%29/619|0/%28brand3%29/Canon

but anyway, we will see, if canon will do a better job than nikon.
it´s about time...

I suppose the only thing MORE worthless than DxOmark's sensor scores, are their lens scores.  Absolutely worthless.

as a scientist, i rather trust standardized measurements with hundreds of cameras than individual opinions based on pixel peeping.

but that´s just me. and science. ;-)

If these are close to what the 70D specs would be like, then I can't wait to see what the 7D MkII specs would be like!

as a scientist you should also know that if you measure irrelevant data you get useless results

I thought all Nikon's good cameras had Sony sensors in them?

I am very happy with the sensor in my Canon cameras. They do a pretty good job of making me look quite good at times.  8)
