Btw: "EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 70D & 700D" ... only one consumer body? There are supposed to be at least two xxxd releases a year, what's up Canon? :->
No, Canon has only ever released on xxxD camera per year (T1i, T2i, T3i, now T4i)...and then every couple of years they update their entry camera, which is an xxxxD (XS, T3)

You can see the timeline here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Canon_EOS_digital_cameras

Canon would just replace the xxxxD lineup with the EOS-M camera/lenses.
I think this will be the reality. I can't imagine anyone who would buy a T3 at this point when the EOS-M is similarly spec'd and priced. I think the xxxxD line is dead.

Also wouldn't surprise me if in 3 years or so, the xxxD line goes by the wayside too.

The great thing about this rumor is that it is from the same source as the 'high MP rumor'.

As the high MP rumor claims that there will be a new camera in about one month, we will soon know how realistic this rumor is...

I can't help but chuckle at the state of affairs on this forum now. For years I coveted a 5Dmkii but couldn't justify getting rid of my 7D to do it. After all the 7D AF system is "light years" ahead of the antiquated 5dmkii AF system. I read hundreds of threads and posts dedicated to how bad the mkii AF system was/is. The general consensus was just giv us a 22mp (who needs more, right) 5D with a better AF system. Well Canon delivered exactly that. What's the old saying? Watch out, you might get what you asked for. I'm still amazed at the pictures a lot of you have gotten with your 5D mkii and it's antiquated AF system.

So what exactly is needed on the 7Dmkii ? Just better DR? More MP? WiFi? Espresso maker? Remember the warning (it's in bold above).

P.S. I'm busy saving for a 5D mkiii and I am soooo loking forward to getting my hands on it, even if it doesn't have enough DR/MP/WiFi/whotsits/thinga-mabobs.  ;)

The price on the 5D3 did seem a bit high at intro since it didn't also bring along top low ISO DR, although it's now settling more into $2800-3100 range which seems perfectly fine.

Where? I see the 5DIII still almost US$3500

gotta look around, Adorama, J&R, Beach and others have had all sorts of spot sales for it anywhere from $2750-$3175 all said an done. My deal was more complex, but I got it out of J&R, in the end, already months and months ago for $3175, but some of the recent deals have been straight up boom way less than $3499.

Beach sold 100+ units at $2,799 and Adorama beat Beach at $2,750 for 818 units.

Yep, you gotta look around.

So, this is interesting...

Why won't Canon lower the price of the 5D3 so more people can buy it? Wouldn't they make more money and make the brand more popular? I would buy one.  :-[

Really, who cares what the MSRP is if the street price is dropping?

The price for the 5D Mark III is okay, if Canon improve the quality of the RAW-data, the JPG-quality of the pictures and fix the problems that a lot of photographers report since april 2012.

The 7D MK II will most likely completely redefine APS-C. Those who have mocked the 7D will beg for the chance to kiss Mitarai-San's feet for the chance to beg for forgiveness and the opportunity to be allowed to purchase one!
What is truth?

I really hope we hear something about the 70D soon, im about two clicks away from buying a 650D 135STM kit but I want to wait to see if the 70D brings all the cool features of the 650D and puts it in the 60D body and makes some sort or prosumer super camera haha
I will be doing 50/50 photos and video and being younger generation touch screen is a must for me.

And how is it going to do that  :o ?

The only way it does that is through negating a few of the traditional advantages of a full frame sensor through improved sensor technology, while retaining the speed and reach advantage of lower megapixel APS-C.  If DOF and resolution are the only discernible differences between APS-C and full frame, then they will redefine APS-C as a choice based on use-case rather than as an entry into DSLR photography.  The problem is that for economies of scale to kick on on the new sensor, they will likely need to use the sensor down to the rebel line.  Marketing such a beast becomes a bit tricky though.
