When it could be presented the new Canon 70D?
« on: September 16, 2012, 02:38:24 PM »
I think a Canon 70D will not presented at photokina 2012. I thought that a new prosumer camera XXD would be imminent, but I think I was wrong.

Since they are two years that the 60D has entered the market, when it could be released an upgrade to the 60D?

give me suggestions :)

Sorry for my bad english, i'm Italian  :-[

February 2013 maybe. But the 7D is aging too. 3 years now.

I have the same problem. I'm also looking forward to the 70D, but I'm not considering the 60D. Why? The sensor is pretty old (3 years), the autofocus system its not that much better than the one in the 650D. I think the 70D will have some nice improvements over the 60D, which was kind downgraded from the 50D in its position in the lineup.

It looks like the 7D will be succeeded by the 6D (Fullframe), so the 70D could indeed move up a little bit again.

I considered the switch to FF after I head the specs and the price of the 6D. The camera itself is affordable, but when I sum up the money I would have to invest in lenses, then it is too much money for me. The new 24-70 f2.8 is 2300$, the old one still 1400$; the EF-S 17-55 f2.8 on the other hand is 1000$, the also very nice EF-S 15-85 is down to 650$. So even if though the body is affordable, the money for the lenses is just too much.

So it seems, that I have to live with my trusty old 350D for a few month more. But one thing I know for sure is, that a new camera won't improve my compositions, so I can live with what I have.

So you think it's better to buy now or wait for February 2013?

MARCH 2013 Canon will launch an EOS 70D as the new flagship 18MP APS-C sensor body for $1299


SEPTEMBER 2013 - a new 7D mark II may be announced, with a 27MP APS-H sensor + a few parts borrowed from the 1DIV, as well as dual-DIGIC5+ chips and it will be a speed demon costing $2500 targeted at Pro's who will use it with expensive white telephoto 'L' lenses.


just my two cents worth....

If they do, it'll be dead on arrival.

It will need at least 24MP or it will fail.

My new guess is that the new 70D actually will be named 8D. A smaller brother to the 7D. Just like the 6D is the smaller brother to the 5D.
