But I wanted a intermediate body (like 60D, K-5), only because I dont intend to upgrade the body for the next 4-5 years. With that time frame a noob like me can slowly learn the ropes of photography and possibly exploit the potential of the intermediate camera.
I recommended the Nikon because your current requirements and knowledge is "basic". But if you really want to learn photography and are aware that dlsrs are about multiple lenses, too: by all means, get the 60d+15-85!
I've learned how to shoot with this camera body too, and it's exactly what you want for this purpose (and runs the great firmware add-on "Magic Lantern". The lens is very good, too, though not low-light capable (moving children indoors or such) and has the ef-s mount that doesn't work on full frame bodies, but that shouldn't matter to you now.
Considering "waiting or not", the standard answer: gear in this category always changes, you're loosing shots and experience every day if you have none gear currently, a camera upgrade won't teach you how to shoot, and a new camera will be much more expensive at first - esp. the 70d is expected to make a price jump up. So my 2 cents: Get it now, shoot tomorrow, you won't regret it.
