I just noticed the 7d is 1299.00 after a $200 instant savings at B&H photo.  I voted for $1300. I wonder how many here would rather have the 7d or the new 70d if they could get them for around the same price?

Hmm, interesting question. At $1299, it is a pretty attractive price. I got mine at $1350 in Dec. 2011...I have been quite happy with it so far, and have never regretted the price.

I voted that the 70D will probably land around $1500. I think it fits with Canon's price trend lately, and given the fact that it is a new sensor (whether that sensor uses smaller transistors or not), with a higher resolution, and has 7fps...I think it will fill the role the 7D once had. That seems to warrant a price increase. If it does land at that price, then I think a $1300 7D will be a pretty hot item until they are gone. ;)

If they're as delusional as with the 6D MSRP (compared to the D600 specs), they'd price it the same as or even slightly higher than the D7100 MSRP (~$1300). If they want to be more competitive given its specs vs. D7100, it should be priced at or slightly lower than the 60D introductory MSRP (~$1100).

$1200 would be fair, $1100 would be smart, and $1300+ would be dumb.

Judging by the leaked specs, the 70D is virtually a 7D MKii.

So the 70D will probably be priced just below the 6D.

Really??  If that's spec'd like a 7D MkII, there are going to be a lot of disappointed 7D users... None of them would upgrade for those specs... Okay, hardly any...  ;)

I voted for $1200 but if it is at that I will wait a few months for a) manufacturing bugs to be worked out (we all know there will be some, there always are) and b) the price to drop around the holiday season.

If it has AFMA Ill get both the 70D and 6D to cover all my needs, and SWMBO will use whatever I am not using. If no AFMA then I am not sure what I will do

I guess it will be 1400$. This is within the reach of the 7100d. It is also quite a bit below the 6D. I think the 7DII will be priced very close to the 6D; so 1400 is a good number for the 70D.

We will see tomorrow.

Uh oh, I voted what I thought it would be, not what it should be . . . maybe Canon's tryin' to figure out how much they can squeeze us for  ;D

I'm not just one noid, I'm a paranoid . . . it's too bad they don't have cyclical/simultaneous release cycles.  I'm definitely going to swap out my crop body this year, but I'm not moving this time until I see what happens with the 7DmkII (specifically price wise).

Oh well, if wishes were fishes, the sea would be full :)
