Price as expected.  No AFMA that I can find, but it does have a touch screen.
 
I've pretty much promised myself to never buy another camera that does not include AFMA, so I'll pass, or if it shows up, I might reconsider.

Woot! It's $1,199 body-only! What a nice surprise. And AFMA! Hopefully by Christmas, I'll have my pennies saved and there'll be some deals to knock it down from MSRP a bit. I'm stoked...

It has AFMA according to this video from Canon: Canon EOS 70D - First Look

There's also a sample video showing the AF performance, but it appears to be simulated on the camera screen.

Also, there are several references in that video to this sitting below the 7D in the lineup.

Wow!! 1200 for the body!! I'd say that's an excellent price point to start on!! Super competitive with all that it is offering plus the price!! I think Nikon might bow out with the 7100. We'll have to see the reviews on it though first. :D congrats canon and thank you!

I'm very happy with the listed price - for the specs that the Canon 70D has... it's packs a good amount of value. 

To me, seeing these particular features included, is great:
  • AF (19pt, cross type - like my 7D)
  • New sensor (20.2 megapixels)
  • great rate of 7 fps (almost the same as the 8 of my 7D)
  • AFMA (for up to 40 lenses)
Swivel screen is good too... one thing I wish the 7D had.

Well done, Canon.

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

Awesome. I just need to see if there any improvements to video besides the AF thing nobody cares about. And of course, I need to get some money!

Not to be negative, but I don't think Canon is in the x-mas present business - if they price the 70d just as Nikon's d7100 this means that even Canon thinks that their camera is somewhat lacking, and this can only mean the the sensor performance as you'd expect from a tweaked 18mp sensor. You'd also expect a lot of video moire from a 20mp sensor just like on the 6d, we'll see.

Btw: here's dpr's hands on preview, but w/o sample shots: http://www.dpreview.com/previews/canon-eos-70d
