Had there been an announcement by Canon.. I guess you could "wait". This is just a rumour (for the time being) and if you need a camera now... just get one you like (7D) and if you feel the need to upgrade if a new one is released.. then by all means.. do so.

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.

I'm not going insane. and again i have plenty of gear to hold me off. i think it would be awesome to have a 7D II/70D that has similar performance with handling and ergonomics but with an updated 18MP sensor. don't care for high MP. just want better high ISO. Which i don't think is unreasonable to expect in the flagship APS-C body. It could be worth the wait if will be coming shortly. and judging by the fact that the 7D is nearing 3 years of age and the 60D is nearing 2 years old, we could be seeing a new one very soon. Look at canons past timelines. Any way. i might be worth the wait. just getting opinions.

but if the 70D is 6 months+ away then will go back to 7D vs 60D

I'm sure it is 6 month+ if we're talking actual product delivery here.

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

From a marketing perspective, that wouldn't be a sound strategy because when dropping two digit xxd bodies, they'll forfeit the 40d legacy and there would be no stepping stone between xxxd and xxd. But other than that I still think you're correct, but the new cameras fusing 60d/7d will be called 70d, while a 5d2 successor will be called 6d.

Not sure I understand you wanting a 70D anyway you list you have a 5D3 and a 60D now. Anyway theres no telling if or when a 70D may show up or what the MP will be. The 7D is very good but getting old but still very good. And if you just need a back up camera look at the new 650D its cheap and 18MP with a good AF system.

I would pick a guess for Photokina, there will be Canon showing their new arrivals for season 2013 :)

Single digit > double digits.  The 7D hasn't broken with this tradition.

6D...lol

No, but if there won't be any 70d but only a 7d2, there won't be a double digit body anymore too.

I still don't know why people are so stuck on if it is a full frame camera, then it is a pro camera and needs a XD name. What makes a camera a pro level camera or not is NOT the sensor size. It is all the other factors, durability, usability, performance, etc. (i.e. the 1D , 1D MkII, III and IV) The 7D deserves the XD moniker.

A full frame entry level camera can be just that an entry level camera. There is no reason that the full frame entry level needs a XD moniker, and lots of that it could and should be an XXD camera.

You should DEFINITELY wait.  Yes, wait for sure.  Oh, no, waiting might...no, no you should buy something now!  Hmm, but what if...no, wait...yes, wait.  However...

Look, you don't NEED the camera right NOW, so just wait. Commit to Black Friday. How about that? That's post Photokina, and whatever's new is bound to be out by then.
