The thing that makes me most doubt that is a real T4i picture is, if Canon has organizationally decided that the DOF preview button is better placed to the right of the lens (as on the 5d3), what is it still doing on the left (from the operator's perspective) in that picture?

It is photoshopped.

What do you believe guys? Can we expect a new sensor on the t4i?

Further more, 18mp require really good AF (if one shoots portraits), very good lenses (calibrated in service-centre), micro AF adjustment (which is missing in XXXd) and good patience when pictures are somewhat out of focus. Am I the only one who sees that xxxd line is not "well balanced" in terms of feautures and target audience?
Actually, to me the XXXd and XXd line seems to be quite balanced - these are *not* cameras for professionals shooting in low-light with fast (L-)lenses. I wouldn't protest if they were a little cheaper, though.

The af of the 60D is crappy in comparison to the 7D, so you'll get less good shots in pro situations. Afam doesn't seem to be needed with Canon lenses of f4 or slower because of the larger dof. In hindsight, I think Canon cut this from the 60D and below not only to sell their 7D, but to torpedo fast 3rd party lenses which seem to have more need for af adjustment.

What do you believe guys? Can we expect a new sensor on the t4i?
I think Canon has to do something if they want to get away with yet another XXXd/XXd release. I'm happy with 18MP, but I want iso 1000 to be like ISO 400 now - something like a 2 stop improvement like in the 5d3 to 5d2.

Digic5 is all I ask for.  Thank you Canon for listening
If they listen to this (which they won't :-)): Please put in Digic4 which is magic lantern compatible, because a new processor will only help with jpeg or video, and I don't use both. Afaik, a new processor won't make that much difference when shooting raw.

 Why there isn't any rumor for the T4i.
OK all the people are speaking for the 5D3 now but how about us with lower budget.

Ok so what we expect from the T4i?
I'm sure there will be a in-camera chromatic aberration correction.
Probably they won't change the focusing system and the viewfinder will remain the same.

Oh yes, a touch screen. This seems like a rebel feature.

Did you notice the last sentence of the article you linked?

We will see a Rebel before a full frame like 5D III or something similar.

Since I believe the Rebel will have MORE features than the high end bodies (since the competitor mirrorless cameras do), it makes sense to release the new Rebel after the high end, because people would complain about not having the features the toy model does.

Haha at the lens on the "T4i" I would assume it is photo shopped with that 200$ old school non IS lens sitting on the end.

I can just imagine the hassle a touch screen would create. You put your eye to the viewfinder, your nose touches the screen before the light sensor switches it of...and .... crap, wrong exposure/wrong white balance/incorrect AF drive mode/etc. You just missed your epic shot.

I'll happily pass on touch-screen DSLR's, thanks! :-P

It could have to do with the physical size of the body. since xxxD bodies are smaller it could be that they have concerns with the user accidentally bumping the button since the grip side is a bit cramped. of course, that image is photoshopped, but I can see space constraints keeping DOF where it's at.
Canon XTi, AE-1 Program, Rebel II, Tamron 17-50 VC, Zenitar-M 50/1.7 and a bunch of other cheap lenses (50/1.8FD, 18-55 EF-S Kit, 35-70 Kit, 80-200 4.5-5.6). S100 classic.

I am still hoping for an upgrade to the sensor, really hoping for improved ISO and image quality.  I think a Digic 5 could help with the image quality, the jpeg image at least.  But a better ISO would need improvements in the sensor, right?

According to this chart on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Canon_EOS_digital_cameras, except for the T2i & T3i, the Rebel has gotten an upgraded sensor each model and a new model comes out about every 1.5 years.  So, it seems like we are due for a new Rebel and hopefully some good upgrades.

(The Rebels have proximity sensors above the screens.)
