Finally a new sensor. This might slow down t5 sales as people will wait for t6 now.

I really don't see all the hassle regarding GPS. I think it's useless. GPS is useful in cars and mobile phones if you're lost, but geo-tagging? Couldn't care less and certainly will not be a deal maker or breaker.

It is for me.  I like to know where pictures were taken.  That might be practical if I shot a couple of dozen pictures per day.  When I go on a two week vacation, though, I average 2-3,000 shots—on the order of a couple of hundred shots per day.  Without geotagging, it is completely infeasible to figure out where each shot was taken with much more precision than "Somewhere in [insert city here]."  With geotagging like I have on my iPhone, I just load the pictures into Lightroom, click the Map tab, and I can see where the photo was taken to within a few feet.

I've been waiting six years for Canon to release a crop body with GPS.  I guess I can wait another year.  I was just hoping to actually have GPS for the photos I'm going to take in September.  At this point, given that they've already shipped the 6D with GPS, I can't imagine even contemplating buying a camera without GPS knowing that there's about a 90% chance that they left it off the 70D because they plan to save that "advanced feature" for the next 7D.

So I'll continue waiting.  Again.

Ok no more about that  ::)

Oh you mentioned the pub, that's another thing that's super expensive here. What was I thinking moving back?

Of course, but I get the impression that you are not back for good, so soak up the cultural benefits of being in Europe, and thank your lucky stars it is not winter, as I have seen those YT videos of what you Swedes get up to after too many schnapps! Even Anthony Bourdain partook in such a refreshing dip I believe!

I'm pretty sure 70D did not inherit 7D's AF, just because 7D has a dedicated processor just for the AF + Dual Digic4 processors. Dedicated processors is what makes 7D's, 5DIII's and 1D's series AF so splendid.


5DIII doesn't have dual digic 5+...



And if 70D has GPS than then body will be like the 6D

exactly same situation at Nikon and Canon: still no replacement for 7D and D300s.
70D closely matching D7100, both re-using the old phase AF-systems of the former top APS-C cameras.   

Most important prediction: 70D sensor with 20 MP and only 1 stop "better" than 7D will be NO MATCH for Nikon D7100 sensor and IQ - not in resolution and not in DR - I expect a 1-stop difference in Nikon's favor.

Apart from sensor, 70D and D7100 are very closely matched. Body quality very similar with some metal structure on the inside and a lot of plastics everywhere else. Definitely no complete Mg-alloy shell. Viewfinder (pentaprism, 100% coverage, somewhere between 0.94x to 0.98x magnification), single SD-card slot, pop-up flash w/wireless flash commander, no AFMA.

Some advantages for Canon: 7fps vs. 6fps, fully articulated LCD, better live-view implementation w/hybrid AF (Contrast + on-sensor phase-detect), probably better video and built-in WiFi.

Definitely nothing that would justify pricing above D7100 - currently @ € 1,000 / body. :-)

I suppose the only thing MORE worthless than DxOmark's sensor scores, are their lens scores.  Absolutely worthless.
How can you say that? DXO scores the 50f1.8 higher than the 600f4.0 so it MUST be a better lens........ (Huge sarcasm tag inserted here)
The best camera is the one in your hands

Canon 8D?

What about Canon 8D?

http://www.fotoplus.su/catalog/photo/canon/5542/

As the 70D along with 8D was present on this site hours before the 70D specs leaked, I wouldn't be suprised if 8D also gets announced, and 7D2 will be a whole different body with different sensor.

What if 70D is like 60D in quality and AFMA, and 8D is like a more robust 7D, and 7D2 is something even better next year, even with a new and bigger sensor.

does that mean this sensor will be in the 7D MK2 too?

how likely do you think is it?

and do you think this sensor is using a better manufacturing process?

i really don´t want/need more MP but DR and low iso noise performance of the recent sony sensors would be nice.

It's an interesting spec list. This new camera isn't far off the current 7D specs.
19 point AF and 7fps!

or maybe the 8D IS the 7D MK2?
the replacement of the current 7D.

they also would make room for a completely new 7D speeddemon with an APS-H sensor?
that way the naming in canons lineup would make more sense too, if there ever will be a new APS-H sensor.

FF:
1D
3D
5D
6D

APS-H:
7D

APS-C:
8D
70D

Too many DSLR's body's ... If Canon will introduce a new body/camera category in the current range almost certainly will be a Big megapixel monster for studio and fashion use, not another pro-summer body.

The specs of the 70D from my point of view bring into question the possibility that 7Dmk2 to be APS-H, thought as a real backup camera for 1Dx, and priced somewhere at $2500.

i really like the GPS in the 6D.

but they have to bring out a firmware update.

GPS is draining the battery when the camera is off.
and it´s kind of annoying to always enable and disable GPS manually.

there should be an timer, so when the cameras is in OFF modus the GPS will be disabled after 1 hour or 30 minutes.

can you go into more detail why?

if the 8D is the top of the line APS-C, replacing the 7D.
an APS-H could be a nice backup camera to the 1D X.

not?
