i really don't see it making much sense to come in at $3,000...unless they're also bringing out a 70D sometime soon...having a jump from a $600 rebel to a $3,000 camera if all you're after is better ergonomics for bigger hands is ridiculous...they definitely need something to fill that gap...something along $1,500 lines...and i think canonrumors is saying that the XXD line is going away...
If you just look at UI and memory cards, I am skeptical of the notion that there won't be a 70D. Why? Because of the 6D.
The 6D is the natural upgrade from the 60D... pretty much the same UI, same memory cards, a full-frame alternative for the same market as the 60D.
The 7D user's natural upgrade would be the 5DIII rather than the 6D.
If Canon did not intend to have a 70D, why did they model the UI for the 6D on the 60D and why did they use SD cards?
I'm assuming the 7DII would still use CF (perhaps CF/SD dual slots), and still keep the high-end UI with the joystick, etc.
If there is no 70D using SD cards, then the 6D looks like an orphan already. It's a pretty big jump from Rebel to 6D.
