should i wait for 70D? when will it be here by?
« on: June 15, 2012, 01:51:24 PM »
So I'm either buying a used 7D. a new 60D. or waiting for 70D. I want to get it with the 18-135 (i or ii) is the 70D just around the corner? I have plenty of gear to hold off but if the 70D is 6 months+ away then will go back to 7D vs 60D

My orb says the 70D will be a full frame poly carb body, its price will be $1995.00 (USD) and will be available for purchase just in time for Christmas.

I had this same decision to make a few days ago.  I'm going with the 60D.  It's just a guess but if a 70D does come out its probably gonna be priced $1500+ since the t4i is at $1200 already.  But Like I said I'm guessing.  Price might not matter to you.

Don't make decisions based on rumors, if you need a camera now get whatever suits your needs the best (and is readily available).  No one can tell you when we'll see a 70D for sure, but if I had to guess I'd say September (Photokina).

If you don't want to wait 6 months or however long then go 7D if both are a possibility I wouldn't even waste my time with a 60D.     Also Canon Loyalty program charges about 1000 for a 7D body if they are in stock.

I have a 60D already and i love it. and a used 7d with 18-135 alone is $300 more than a new 60D with 18-135 with a battery and same size/speed. which could make it worth it. Images of the same quality 60D vs 7D. don't need super fast burst. i like the af and build quality of 7d. think that is worth $300?

Don't need the camera right away. I have plenty of gear to hold me off. but i kinda need a 4th camera and don't want to keep borrowing my buddies t2i. so it may be well worth the wait if the 70D will be here in 3-4 months and will have better video (better nr, moire/aliasing). Guess i'm kinda wanting a digic 5+ 7D with better nr and moire/aliasing handling.

Just a point of curiosity.

Why does anyone think Canon will create a new camera and call it a 70D?

Frankly, I'm bewildered by non-stop talk of a 70D camera. Where did this idea originate? Has there been some credible leak or a well-sourced rumor? Or is it all pure fantasy?

At this point, I leaning toward believing a 1DX may enter the realm of reality. But something called a 70D?

Because when Canon upgraded the 50D and called it the 7D, everybody kept asking where the 60D was, and eventually Canon made a 60D. So, if everybody keeps talking about a 70D eventually Canon will make one.

I think it is because of the 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, and the 60D.  A 70D does seem very likely but not absolutely guaranteed occurance.  There is no reason to not expect one, it competes with the Nikon D90, and Canon will not give up on outselling it.  At a slightly lower price, cost concious buyers jump for it.
 
When a D400 comes out, we will see a 7D MK II about the same time, its all about competition and buyers who want the latest thing.

Forget the 70D. The new 70D will be the 7DII.

The T4i is the 60D in a smaller body at $150 cheaper. The 70D will have to be the 7D in terms of performace. Where does that leave the 7D? Not full frame that's for sure.

My guess is that they will merge the two lines into the 7DII.

But then again, the 7D is one hell of a camera that you can buy now and blows the 60D out of the water. (in MHO)

Why wait?

You are aware this site is called canon RUMORS yes?

70D... hmmm... let me think about this for 0.1 seconds. It doesn't exist, it may actually not ever exist. Sure canon will likely bring something new to the market by christmas (but wait, that could be next year for all we know), but does one want to wait that long? I wouldn't, I'd go insane.

Im glad I jumped ship and have a 7D and not waiting on nikon's replacement for the d300s! -  Waiting?... .... Still waiting... 

Its not worth it, just get something.

We used to have this argument in computers with better reasons: every time Monopolysoft released a new version of winnders it required a newer bigger computer just to run the same programs. You are lucky this is Photography and no monopolysoft here (yet)

The thing you should consider is what you are missing by not having a camera NOW; (you can always sell it used and get a 70D later if it actually is better (canon seems to be set on 18 MP but higher quality sensors) - from the T4i likely the big difference will be touchscreen and if that's not so important to you, it probably won't be so much of a change

So, again: what are you missing out on now?
