Hi,
    Saw it on the store yesterday night and play with it.

    The normal AF is faster compare to 60D and the live view AF work really well and fast. High ISO performance basically same as 60D.

     By the way, I notice that the 70D user manual indicate that there are 2 version: 70D (W) and 70D (N). 70D (N) do not have WIFI... certain country cannot use WIFI??

    Have a nice day.

I noticed DigitalRev jacked up the price $150 sometime during the day yesterday, trying to gouge those poor bastards who simply can't wait an extra 3-4 days.

You guessed right. Most countries agree to standards for radio communications and as long as the manufacturer can prove that they meet the standard, they are allowed to sell the product. That means one set of certification tests covers almost all countries.

Some countries have their own standards and some have restrictions on what equipment is allowed to broadcast.... For those places the only real solution is to remove wireless functionality. It can be as simple as leaving out a component, such as a wireless transponder, and a slightly different firmware with those functions removed from the menu.

The best camera is the one in your hands

I just got mine this afternoon (August 22nd) at Aden Camera in Downtown Toronto (Yonge and Dundas) for $1150 (body only). They had a lot of 70Ds with the 18-55mm kit, a few 18-135mm kits, and some bodies. Waiting for the battery to fully charge to play with it :-)

Lucky. I preordered mine from Adorama over a month ago so I've gotta wait until next week sometime.

all of you who already own a 70D. can you honestly comment on its even smaller back wheel/dial than the one on 60D? an honest opinion.

because when i first saw the pictures and comparison, i thought to myself that no way can this be nice if your fingers arent those of a child. and then i heard it on a review stating the same "problem".

From the little time I could play with it so far, it is indeed terrible, specially the directional keys inside the wheel. They are a little hard to press and it is very easy to rotate the wheel when pressing the keys and vice-versa.

Try it in the store if you are concerned, but this is one of very few flaws on this otherwise awesome camera. The touchscreen interface, while not a proper replacement, does mitigate the problem a little.

Hahaha, I'm sorry, but so far I've only taken pictures of my baby girl, and my wife doesn't allow me to post them online :)

I'll have more time tonight.

I'm really interested in the image quality from the camera - the samples on dpreview, particularly at higher ISO, don't seem much better than the budget cameras.

also owners of the 70D, test its AF track capabilities through VF on moving subjects (preferably sports), if it can compare to 7D.

<strong>From Australia</strong><br />
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.</p>
<p><strong>*UPDATE*

</strong>Bodies are arriving at retailers as we speak.</p>

<p><strong>The rest of the world…</strong>

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.</p>
