I'm happy to see 1080p60 on Canon cameras, even if it's the PowerShots. I think there's an interest out there to start shooting things at higher frame rates (I know I'm interested). Can't wait until more DSLRs get that feature. Can't quite justify getting a 1DC at the moment :D

KyleSTL:
1080p60?  Where is this in the DSLR line?  9.4 FPS for the S120 and 9.3 for the G16?  Again, all but the 1D X cannot touch that.  Clearly processing power is not the issue at this point, market segmentation is. 

I saw that photorumors also said to expect an S200 camera, which appears to be a notch below the S120, but they did not specify how large the 10MP CCD sensor would be (probably 1/2.3", I'm guessing, unless they are recycling the S90/S95 sensor).

neuroanatomist:
If they can really do a 24-120mm (FFeq) f/1.8-2.8 lens in an S120, without bulking it up, that would be great.  But I suspect the spec is wrong...

With a digic6, it has a lot more computing power than most DSLR's

Start with a Digic4.... Call it speed factor 1.
60D, digic4, speed =1X
7D, dual digic 4, speed =2X
T5i, Digic 5, speed = 6X
5D3, digic 5+, speed =17X
1DX, dual digic5+, speed =34X

I'm not sure how much faster Digic6 is, but a safe bet is twice or more power than a Digic5+, so at least 36 times the power of a 60D.... The p/s cameras didn't get 60fps until digic6, so it stands to reason that it is tipping point for DSLR's too.
