I'm leaning toward "none of the above."

It seems very quiet for an imminent announcement. Sounds like Nikon will make their announcement/announcements around Sept. 13. Almost all the details of the Nikon full frame entry level camera seem to be confirmed, yet there are no solid rumors of the Canon. I'm thinking Canon Rumors Guy's October date is more likely. I'd like to be wrong, but I'm afraid I won't be.

I think next up with be either the 70D or the 7DII or both.

As an aside, what is a "Real higher iso full frame." I don't think current technology allows much higher than what is already available in the 5DIII or 1DX. Certainly Nikon hasn't been able to match Canon in high ISO performance, so what would Canon be announcing?

There have been multiple Rebels launched since the 60D, so 70D is next in line, especially as Canon is now more interested in volume-selling. The 7D mark II can wait until 2013, when the 7D will be 4-years old.

Enthusiasts/Pro's have had 2 new flagship products already in 2012 - the 1DX and the 5DIII, they're unlikely to get any more

The marketing people (who really run Canon) will want to leave the 5D2 as the 'budget' FF camera. Why would they shoot themselves in the foot and introduce a $2000 FF body -> that would both hurt 5D3 sales and ruin any chance of a similarly priced APS-C body (aka 7D2, which will likely cost $2500 or 7D1 + $1000)

Finally, as the T4i/650D shows, Canon do not have a new crop sensor yet. So there is no point in a 7D2 without a new sensor with better ISO performance and DR. Therefore the only possible choice (if any at all) will be an 18MP 70D with similar AF to current 7D, 'tilty-swivelly' screen, semi-plastic/semi-metal body, with all of the latest features & functionality that firmware 2.0 for the existing 7D recently brought...and oh yeah... compatibility with STM lenses and continuous AF during video recording. It might even be able to trigger the new 600EX-RT flashes too.

Simple logic combined with an equally simple process of elimination suggest that a 70D @ $999 price point is the most likely new camera body announcement at Photokina by Canon.

My secret source in Tibet tells me they will intro one special new camera.

It will be the EOS 4.5DDXray. With a special new lens [L, of course], this will allow pictures that see through clothing.

I'm told the marketing tag will be:

At last, the dream realized...

My secret source hasn't been wrong right yet.

If this is a "bet," what do I win?

The honor of being correct, a hard to find occurrence on CR :-)

Okay, so where's the option for "nothing significant"?

Wupps, forgot that because I was sure they'll announce at least one body (imho the 70d). I added the option, invalidates the poll of course, but what the heck it's just for fun anyway.

Maybe an "pro" M body? Something that can compete with the NEX-7...

hey why's everyone only talking about the big bodied professional and semi professional cameras what about the midrange cameras like the G1X, the EOS M and the now hinted at Powershot G12+ there are some of us who dont want dont need, cannot justify a big bodied camera but do want to control what we shoot and do want a reasonable IQ.
For me that means that if Canon do announce a PS G12+ I'll be a happy bunny and won't have to move to Nikon or Sony to satisfy my need for a replacement for my G11.
