The Canon EOS 70D is Hitting Stores
« on: August 21, 2013, 09:07:29 AM »
From Australia
The first country to our knowledge to get the new EOS 70D is Australia. A few have started to trickle in to retailers around the country. For the moment it appears only kits have made their way to retailers.

*UPDATE* Bodies are arriving at retailers as we speak.

The rest of the world… We’re told by B&H Photo to expect arrival of the camera to happen before the end of August. Stock will be pretty good, but preorders are still recommended. European retailers should get them around the same time.

Canon EOS 70D Body $1199 B&H Photo | Amazon | Adorama | Norman Camera |  Camera Canada $1299

Canon EOS 70D w/18-55 IS STM $1349 B&H Photo | Amazon | Adorama | Norman Camera |  Camera Canada $1449

Indeed, and the box on top is body only, while the one on the bottom is a kit.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

After the 70D could the new 100-400L be far behind?

 :D I have to say the price is pretty good at JB $1499 for the kit but body only is not showing there I will still be waiting a while before I make a final decision and purchase as I am off travelling using my 500d. Christmas specials I hope will make this even better.

70D + a few lenses (500D up for sale hubby said it had to go too much clutter)

any thoughts on an updated firmware release for this camera in the coming weeks/months to add additional features?  was on the phone with a Canon tech for an unrelated issue and seemed to be hinting that could be happening at some point in the future - obviously wouldn't elaborate at all, unfortunately...
