The emphasis is on video this time for sure.   For stills shooters the improvement highlight list is short:

-improved 9 pt AF
-5 fps (jpeg)

--
-improved liveview focusing will help stills shot in that mode as well; digic 5 (not mentioned in list at this point).

What stills photography really want is a NEW sensor with improved dynamic range.   We'll have to wait for the T5i for that on a Rebel.  The previous rumor is for a 22mp sensor to come out with the 70D.   My half-baked plan at this point is to buy a t4i for summer shooting; sell it when the 70D comes out.

It does look like a pretty decent upgrade, especially for video -- the only real disappointment for me is stretching out that 18mp sensor for one more generation.   ::)

really important things are always missing for example flash sync speed WE WANT CANON TO GIVE US 1/500 to say the least, 1/160 - 1/200 is a joke, this "new" camera doesnt worth the stretch.

This would mean a radically improved shutter, never ever seen on rebels.  If such a thing were to be devised it's exactly the kind of practical improvement that would be pioneered in the 1 series.  Not an easy thing to market to the non-technical, who are the majority of the rebels intended user.

I don't know if I'd really be all that bothered in anycase.  In a controlled environment the actual exposure duration is the duration of the flash tube burst, much much faster than 1/200th of a second, or even 1/500th of a second.

High speed synch pretty much fixes any problems I've had with daylight fill.  I know it requires an external gun, but if you are serious enough about flash then, you'll have one anyway.   The HSS power drop won't be any worse than the power of the built in flash anyway.

Do you actually own a (DSLR) camera? If so, then what's so bad about your current model that it can't wait until the rumoured 70D announcement? If not, then just buy a 600D or a 60D and enjoy taking pictures with it!

I have an older Canon dRebel that still works OK, and I could just wait for the 70D, but... I figure if I get a T4i and sell it by the end of the year it should hold its value fairly well, freeing up money for a new camera.   

Almost as good as having your cake now and eating it too.

(I tried responding to this earlier and it appears the post was lost, sorry if this is a dupe.)

Looks like a good spec if upgrading to a DSLR but not enough of an improvement on the 550/600D to warrant changing. Hopefully this is a good sign for the spec for the 70D which could be a worthwhile step up for 550/600D owners looking to progress. I guess price will be a deciding factor for many purchasers if the 600D is still retained in the Canon range.

This re-assures me that canon Will have something special for the 7D mark II.

The Rebel will get the 60D AF

The 70D will recieve the 7D's AF and become the top-tier APS-C body for Canon.

The 7DII will recieve a New AF System and Possibly... Just maybe... APS-H. <---- Ace in the Hole vs D600 Nikon.

No mention of the 3x digital zoom in movie mode.  That would be a huge dissappointment if they took that feature out.  It's the main reason I purchased the a T3i for wildlife video.  I was getting stunning results with a 600mm lens for an equivalent 2880mm focal length at f/5.6

I was looking forward to the new T4i to have reduced moire and alieasing in video mode and the significantly better auto focus for stills.

Here's hoping they didn't remove the 3x feature, but just failed to mention it here on this spec list.

Cheers,
Pete

$949 or $999 with the 18-55 kit would be my guess. Take $100 for body-only. T4i with the new 18-135 would probably be $1199, it's usually a $200-250 price premium over the kit lens combo

The D600 is, by rumors, a full-frame camera that is a lower MP, crippled version of the D800. Kind of like a better 5dII if you would. And the 7dII would be an improvement over the 7D. So how is an awesome APS-C camera an ace in the hole against a cheap full-frame camera? Completely different set of users.

I do agree it bodes well for the 70D getting some useful upgrades, seeing as the T4i is currently on par with the 60D on everything but build quality.

APS-H with 10FPS and Great ISO performance for sub 2000$ would make me reconsider the d600 vs the 7DII.

70D will get the 7D's AF and the same 18 MP sensor.  7DII will keep the same AF and get a new sensor.

"APS-H with 10FPS and Great ISO performance for sub 2000$..." what are you high on and where can I get some?!?  :P
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
