Agree with amfoto.

With the specs list of the 70d I would imagine (thankfully) that Canon will allow their engineers to do what they did before with the 7d line, and just go bat**** crazy with it making it the most powerful crop sensor camera possible.

a lot of this tech seems to me to be awfully close to the 7dII that I will be very interested *IF* they ramp up the 7dII....and then the difference between the 7dII and the 5dIII will be very very close.
i am guessing that the 7dII can improve (on paper) with an extra memory card slot...wifi/gps built in...faster frame rate (though it can't be too fast)...maybe double digic 5+ (??)

my point being - that the differences between bodies are getting smaller and smaller
and if it is primarily toys (sorry, but i consider wifi/gps "nice to have" as opposed to "deal breaker")
then we are going to see so many threads in the same light as "what's better for me - 5d3 or 6d" (just change the body names to fit the period)

I don't see why it would...that's extreme wishful thinking there...

I'd say the chances of that happening are about .000923%.

Looks awesome, cant wait for sample images and reports on the AF system...

Not the camera for me (I love my 7D's ergonomics too much) but i havnt been this excited for a Canon DSLR in a while and cant wait to see what the 7D's replacement brings to the table :D

Hey I'll join the banter ~ :eek:

the 70D is not a response to the D7100 - its release was coming inevitably.

But at least a few of the features would be a response to the D7100's features, me thinks.

I am relieved Canon brought back the AF MA... after all, it was just a firmware thing. And it inherits the 7D AF system - with even better high ISO (better BIF!)

I'm also glad the max sync speed remained at 1/250... even the new 6D only got 1/200

I'm happy that the 70D is a tiny bit smaller than the 60D...

I think its a great camera and will be an UPGRADE from the 7d in many ways that many people find useful.
VIDEO for sure
I think the AF will be just as good, and if it isnt, it wont be measurable without microsecond tools. LOL
wifi will be very cool.

As for the flip out screen, you guys know the screen can face out and stay IN the back of the camera just like the 7d and every other older camera's fixed screen. it can not break off in that orientation.
I owned a 60d for a year. loved it. sold it and got a 7d and sometimes wish I still had the 60d instead. I miss the flip screen for low angle shots that I dont want to lay on the ground and the 60d had slightly better high ISO properties.

as for the button layout, its really intuitive on the 60d and this layout is very similar to the 6d Im guessing. The directional pad is nice as it can be reached in vertical or landscape orientation. thats a win because its awful to reach the joystick on the 7d in portrait orientation.

This camera is a win in my book. I will think hard about getting one while waiting to see what the 7d2 may bring.

Looks like a great camera actually. I hope the new sensor has the high ISO and DR performance people are after.

I was hoping they replaced the D-pad with a joy stick but I'd settle for it being more 'clicky' and less spongy than the 60D.

With the inclusion of wifi in cameras now the articulated screen is becoming less of a necessity for low or high stills, at least when using a tripod, so I would consider moving to a camera with a joystick over articulated screen at this point.

It's a great shame they've persisted with the awful lugs they have for straps.

And a bummer for video folks as it has no headphone jack? For a camera with so many dedicated video features this seems strange!

They aren't going to announce the 7D mark2 until they've sold enough 70D's. So, if the 70D is release in September, I doubt we'll see a 7D2 announcement before spring of next year at the earliest.

if a 7D comes out it'll probably be like $1900...totally different market

It has the same number of AF points, but there's been no mention of it having a dedicated AF processor. And it's that feature which is responsible for the excellent AF of the 7D (and 5D3 and 1Dx).

2 processors from 2009 are not very likely to be superior to a single one from 2013. It's been a while.

Looks like they have autofocus in movie mode too

I'd assume that's only with STM lenses

All Canon DSLR's with video can do AF in video mode. You just have to press the AF button or half press the shutter depending on the model.

The newest Canon DSLR's like the T4i, T5i, and SL1, all have Continuous AF in video mode. Any AF lens will still do continuous AF with these cameras, but STM lenses are quieter and smoother.

The 70D will also have Continuous AF in video mode and it will work with both older lenses and STM lenses.
