absolutly. that´s why i like dxomark. they are doing a great job.
why should someone better rely on "gold awards"?

at the moment nikon is the clear leader in sensor quality.

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)
me too  :P

View finder?
Coverage? 95%? 100%?
Magnification? x .. 1.0? 0.78? 0.95?

I may be alone here, but the deal killer for me is if it only comes with one custom user setting.  Here's hoping it has 3.

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!

BIG +1

You have spared me to write exact the words quoted above.

+1

The 7D MKII should be AMAZING! 

If they are putting this much tech. into a 70D, I can only imagine all the world-beating specs coming to soon to be released Canon DSLRs...

And thank you for built-in WiFi!   ;D

I'm not too familiar with current crop bodies, but do they have these custom modes at all?

Personally I really like the modes and actually I'd like to change Av & Tv modes on my 5D3 into additional custom modes too. Av, Tv & M are modes where I like different settings. Would be nice not to have to change settings (auto ISO, servo, ...) after switching modes. .... Actually an M mode with auto ISO and exposure compensation would make me want to buy a new body. That would be everything that is needed for my kind of photography. Only 1 mode needed, yet not made available on any Canon body.  :'(

I believe some of the newer ones (D5200 / D7100) have Toshiba sensors:

I believe the 60D has one, while the 7D has three.  My 40D has three...and I use all of them.  I set them up at the beginning of a sporting event based on my position, the lighting, and the action speed...and it allows me to move between blocks of settings without leaving the viewfinder.  I would also love more...and it would be even better if you could label them and see that label show up in the viewfinder, but I am pretty sure 99% of xxD users never use them...so I am not holding my breath....and Canon seems to love leaving simple things off to differentiate between models.

Well, this thread is far more encouraging than the last one. I still want to see how it compares to the D7100.

One thing that the Nikon's have going for them is a really nice viewfinder.

These specs sound nice.  Very similar to the current 7D.  I look forward to seeing the specs for the 7D MkII.
I still prefer GPS over Wi-Fi, but beggars can't be choosers.  Maybe Eye-Fi will come out with a GPS in an SD Card some day.  :)

The 70D clearly pack some features, a real upgrade for the 60D.

Looking at the body type,construction and features 70D will not be the king of APS-C.

I believe 7Dmk2 will have THE SAME 20.2 MP sensor but with some extra features like fps , AF, body construction , dual card slots, etc.

In my opinion 70D nice features and specs are a normal/expected response to the competition.

I doubt it. CR did post a very large version though. so maybe hot linking was an issue, even though it shouldn't be as it is not that hard to defend against.

It is still up at photorumors.com and I have a copy too, as do a few people here, I am sure. :-)

The specs look pretty good! I have been waiting for a while to upgrade my old Rebel. I want to see the improvements in sensor noise and dynamic range though. Also hoping for AFMA and dual SD slots but not holding my breath! I wish the video functionality is improved though. 1080p at 60p anyone? The Magic Lantern guys need to hack this and give us RAW 1080!!
