Very good idea. Sometimes ideas flies when you're bored.

How wide ya talking about?

Well that is always the question and the answer is I'm not sure. 10mm is probably overkill, but 12 or 14 on the wide end would be great. Although I'm told that even 15mm is a big difference from my 18-135. I have no experience with wide angle stuff so I'm flying a bit blind.

on the wide end - a difference of 1mm is sizeable... so the difference between 18 and 17 is a matter of noticeable degrees... but the difference between 40 and 41mm would not be noticed.

The difference between 18 and 15 was pretty noticeably wide, that's why I was happy with my 15-85... now I miss it and I'll eventually pick up a 18-55 IS because 18mm vs 24mm (see sig) is HUGE

70D manual is up!

And this has me doing crazy jumps.

It can be set to 19 point mode where it first locks to the manual selection point, then live tracks your subject as it moves in the frame. Birds, beware!

Let's see..in camera HDR (3 shots) - 9 shot multi-exposure to do tricks like the superman above..digital zoom for movies, but that breaks the dual pixel AF and it goes back to contrast detect (EEW)

Wow the 70D sounds awesome. 7D is pending so I might have funds when I'm back on my feet literally :)

So, it has the subject tracking engine from the 7D in AI Servo - when set to 19 point AF it will focus on the manually selected point and then track as the subject moves through the frame. Tons of tweaking options there as far as how hard the camera will lock on to a subject (i.e. should it try to track through obstructions or immediatly try to focus on the closer object) and how dynamic the movement of the subject would be (car vs bird, etc).

No Spot or AF expansion like the 7D has. Same zones as a 7D for Zone AF.

In Camera multi-exposure looks amusing, in camera HDR..stuff you can do in post with the right software and associated extra costs and time to figure it out. Fun to play with maybe.

Has the digital zoom for video from the Rebel line, which breaks the dual pixel AF and goes to contrast detection, so that will probably never be used unless the subject is pretty static...so why take a video..

Yay, focus priority for AI Servo, FINALLY, including the ability to change it for 2nd image when using continuous shooting.

Not a bad feature set for the "level" of camera.

It sounds very nice... it sort of makes me wonder if there is going to be a 7D Mk II. With the cost of full-frame Dslrs coming down, maybe that's where they're going to focus now...

Same question comes to my mind when reading Keyan's infos.... how about 7d ii? At one point in the rumors some said the 60D successor will become the crops top of the line. Maybe its true.

Not really what I did for the Supes multiplicity shot. That's just a tripod and a lot of layers. :D

That's what I'll wait on. I want 10 FPS and AF on a par with the mk iii. Several mirrorless cameras are almost there in the AF department...And several are WELL over 10 FPS. So I may go that rte if the 7D mk II doesn't roll my socks down.

I really think that whoever is planning to upgrade should wait what canon brings to the table in terms of the 7D Mk II. And if the 7D MK ii won't meet your expectations and you think the 70D is sufficient for your needs, the price(70D) rolls back down already.

Patience is a virtue.
