I'm going to go out on a limb and say $999.99 US.... It's not a rebel, it's not a pro body.... think of it as a gateway drug....get people hooked on a good camera and then they buy the expensive stuff. There is a psychological barrier to $1000, it will be a hair under.
If Canon does that, everyone should be blown away. Coming out with a much better spec'd camera for $100 less than list of the 60D would be crazy.

$1299 list is my guess, with it being under $1000 in sales/selling kit lens deals by Christmas

60D also had tilt screen and there is no reason why it can't be both tilt and touch. As for the $1800 suggestion, that is ridiculous. As is the $900 suggestion. Seriously get a clue.

I feel that the camera should be in a $1100-1200 price range, but knowing Canon, they'd bump it to like $1600. So that was my guess.

I think the price will be $1,499.99. Someone mentioned it is spec'd like  a 7D ll. I still say that the interview I read said
"There will be a 70D sometime in the future. Semi pro will be full frame." I read and interpreted, No 7D ll in the future. Time will tell. I hope there is a 7D ll that's as awesome as the 7D is now.  :D

I voted for $1300 but I reckon the price will come down to about $1100-1200 after a few months, eventually settling in around the $1000 mark. The specs alone will sell it for $1300. It's close to 7D specs. Would Canon make the 70D more expensive than the 7D?

I voted for what I would like (1300) but it will be so much higher I'm afraid. I think at least 300 bucks more that the 7100

i think 7D release price was more like $1699

Wupps, I did some wrong research, the 7d has been around so long :-o - corrected.

And it seems some of the people here are in for a shock, either way of much more expensive or cheap than they anticipated ... that's Canon's price policy for you.

And i seriously hope it's a d7100 killer.

No way, the d7100 has the better af system hands down on paper, that won't change in real life. Canon might sidestep Nikon by offering better live-view af and gimmicks (wifi, firmware hdr/panorama).
I voted for what I would like

Please vote for what you really estimate, or it gets confusing - I added this request to the top post.

I voted before reading all the comments, think it's always going to come out a little higher than the Nikon it's up against so I said 1300 but it won't be a round number, 1399 is a damn good guess.

To not follow every marketing trick I used round numbers, so choose $1400 for $1399 and so on...

I voted for 1300.. but with Canon, they might just jack up the price.  It definitely won't be cheaper than the 7100 and it'll be much more expensive than what most of us probably assume it might be.  Sad, but even without inflation, cost of production, advertising... It's Canon.  :P

But this is very very exciting!  Just got my SL1 to replace my t2i but I am really really considering this camera as my main.  SL1 body feels like a point and shoot, not that it performs like that by any means.  :)  All of the specs are kind of what I was looking for in an APS-C camera, and I think that's with most others.  Especially after the, what I think is terrible, the 60D.  Let's just hope that higher ISO sensitivity has more usability than the cameras now.  That'll make it a winner!

One other thing... Will the 70D possibly increase the sales of the 7D?  The 7D will be cheaper.. I don't know and with Canon's marketing, I can't guess other than a high initial stock price.  :D

+1

likely priced above the d7100 just to try capitalize on perception it might be a better product, at least to the faithful.

OTOH...  it COULD be priced ~ $1k to reduce brand-swapping amateurs, after all, even the $700 d5200 is a seriously well-featured competitor if the 70d's build quality is similar to the 60D.

I think it'll come in at $1500, a couple hundred more than the Nikon alternative. I suppose it could be cheaper if it comes with a 60D build rather than the 50D build I'd hope for, not that I'd buy one anyway
