Where exactly was stated or who said, that 70D will set a new benchmark for High ISO? ..

Yeah, I came back to this thread wondering the same thing.  I haven't seen anything in any of the announcements, hands-on previews, etc., that addresses ISO performance being better than before.

Anyone have any info I may have missed?

We couldn’t put a card in the camera because it is a pre-production unit. With that said, we were told to expect comparable ISO performance with the 7D and better color due to the new pixel structure.

quite a bummer, but I guess expectable?

Thanks!
Obviously this part of the 70D rumor mill was way off.

Well with everything I have seen, it really will come down to IQ in comparison to the 6D for me.. I like pretty much all the features of the 70D over the 6D, especially the better AF it seems, but need to see actual tests and comparisons of the final IQ.. I expect the 6D to be better beign FF, but not by too much and I could live with that for the other features and price saving... if that is the case then I will be happy with a 70D as an upgrade from my aging 500D. If the IQ is not up to par then I guess I will have to wait for the 7D2 and see just how ridiculous the price is and again see if the 7D2 IQ matches or even exceeds the 6D.

Yes wait for the 7D Mark II.

If the 7D Mark II hit the market, the price you pay for a 5D Mark III or 6D is absolutely a shame compared to the possibilities of the new 7D Mark II. Not every hobby photographers needs a FF camera.

Interesting news on a potential new sensor, but I'm mostly interested in noise and DR performance at low ISO RAW.

That's the biggest weakness of my 7D, which is otherwise quite good.

Seem like there is no mention of the 70D having weather sealing.

Everything does... to some degree.

There isn’t much in terms of controls here, but you should note that there is an AF assist beam, lens release, and the shutter button.

I stopped reading that "preview" when I saw that line. Lulz.  :P Obvious non Canon DSLR user 2 weeks ago...

If it can perform well at least until ISO 6400 (raw), I'm sold.  A little bit DR would also help.  I hope it can perform at least 1 stop below 6D.  That would be my dream.

Seems you just missed it being mentioned several times in several places.  ;)

Same sealing as 60D (1-series >> 5DIII = 7D > 70D = 60D = 50D = 5DII).

Maybe this:

"The EOS 70D sensor has been manufactured using new materials in the colour filter, which enables the camera to achieve higher light transmittance. When combined with improved transistors inside the pixels, the EOS 70D is able to shoot at higher ISO speeds than previous models, whilst ensuring advanced image quality."

The AF consistency of the 7D is poor, as shown by Focal, Lensrental etc (and in my own experience) whereas the 6D has very consistent focus. So, unless they have improved the 7D 19-point system, the 6D should be better, despite the fewer points.
