Reminder: Canon EOS 70D Launch Tonight
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:03:29 PM »
New EOS
As previously posted, Canon will launch the EOS 70D this evening.

The camera will come as a body only package or kitted with either the EF-S 18-55 IS STM or the EF-S 18-135 IS STM. Below is a screenshot with the price of the kit with the EF-S 18-135 IS STM in Canada. The USA price should be within $100 of this.

Noted in the screenshot below is the September 13, 2013 release date, we’ll see if that turns out to be true. We’re hoping the camera launches well before that date.

Ouch - that's more than a 7D + 18-135mm !

Retail will knock what ? $100-150 from that ?

From the specs and talk of the potential for significant IQ increases, it may be an overall better camera than the 7d. That's why a 7d Mk II is in the near future as well.  We'll find out soon, bring on the testing and sample images!

The 7D is also nearly 4 years old; when that combo came out it initially was $2000 for it.

This seems to point towards the body being in the $12-1300 range

Or maybe this IS the replacement for both the 7D and the 60D.

That's always a possibility.  I hope not though, I think they need a higher level crop camera closer to the 5d Mk III in performance.

As an "lower half" replacemepent, maybe. But there will be an highend crop Camera, something that places the 7DII in the (semi)professional segment.
In my opinion, the 7DII will be the answer to the D400, or the missing link between the 1D crop series and the 7D.

Actually, Canon will announce/release a 7D mark II in the not-so-far future. The 70D might be a step-up from the 4-year-old 7D, but the 7D mark II will be another step-up, essentially a baby EOS 1D X with an APS-C sensor, maybe the same one you see here in the 70D, high-end AF, with a reported high FPS, the early word is 10 FPS, better weather-sealing and a price to match

I'm looking forward to the test results of all the new camera's coming out for Canon.
The one major thing I'm looking at is the question... Has Canon upped it's game
when it comes to dynamic range?

I'm a back country photographer, and shadows can be a challenge at times.

Unlike most other electronics, cameras don't decrease in price and I never expect them to.  :(

The lens is ~$560 retail right now itself, so if the body is $1200-1300 alone that'd be pretty much as expected for a kit price. I believe the body price of the 60D was around $1100 at introduction, so this would be a small increase in price, but on paper it looks like a major increase in capabilities. Unless the body price is kept the same and so the lens in the kit is sold at basically retail in a box.

Especially after a year or so...prices would go higher, due to high demand ;D
