I own an eos 650d rebel class,
I read on forums that the rebels (eos 100d aside) are much smaller & lighter than the more enthusiast models the 70d for example but when comparing size & weight on http://camerasize.com/ (external link) for example there seems to be very little difference millimetres in most cases.

Was considering trading up to the new 760d but for size & weight its likely to be very similar to the 70d which I think is the better buy for money and tech.

Any disagreements?

Thanks for the replies.
I have read of users problems with the 70d autofocus mainly the centre focus point some say its a fault others not.
As for the predicted 80d with I guess an upgraded autofocus still, well that's at least a year or more away yet.
Am inclined to go for the 760d I think keeping my 650d for the newly acquired telescope I have as resale value will be low.
Cant wait for the reviews.
Thanks again.

The 760D (T6s) is very similar to the 70D. There are some differences, such as fps, (5fps vs 7fps) maximum shutter speed, ( 1/4000 vs 1/8000) and then of course megapixels (24.2 Mp vs 20.2 Mp). I have the 650D and the 70D, and there is little difference in size and weight. However I use battery grips on both.

I'm not sure, but I think that the T6s has a built in radio transmitter that can be used with Canon's 600 EX RT & ST E3 RT. If so this would something unique to this camera.

As far as just the size and weight, the 70D is about .3" larger, and about 5oz heavier. Not enough to be noticeable.

I suspect many of us will be making this comparison between the 760d and the 70d trying to decide which direction to go. I still favor the 70d but must admit the 760d is enticing. I still need to see a more thorough list of 760d features and most importantly need to see how the 760d will actually perform in the hands of users here on the forum.

This is not the case. See my response to your previous post...

I would personally say the 70D for the larger viewfinder and better controls including the additional control options near the top LCD and the larger grip. The rebel grip while functional doesn't feel as satisfying as the 70D grip does.

Well, the 760d (the t6s, not the t6i) has the top LCD and the back control dial. Those are big things in my book and this creeps it closer to the 70d class.

I would wait for the reviews to appear. The 760d is very new and I'm willing to bet there are a lot of people wondering wether to get the 760d, 70d or 7d as they all seem to be at the same price (new 760d, used 70d and 7d). I also expect the 80d to be just around the corner because the 760d is likely to eat into the 70d sales.

I used to shoot a 650D in tandem with my old 60D and there was definitely a difference between the two physically--particularly in the grip. For any kind of run and gun shooting--sports or events in particular--the 60D was my primary because it handled better on the fly. And to be sure, the top LCD and larger viewfinder contributed to my preference as well as adjusting ISO IN 1/3 stops.

For the given moment, if I were in your shoe, my choice would surely be the T6s / 760D, no question asked.

Well won't make sense not to ask so yes T6s has the WiFi (Apparently better than older ones), very nice Touch screen LCD, then top of the camera amber LCD like higher end cameras, but more importantly something very different from others, it gives you the advantage of HDR video, that if you haven't heard off, you are not be blamed as this is the first time technology is used. It shoots at 60 fps when every other shoot is slight off and then correct exposure to give you HDR effect on Video. No other camera has this at this time. On the other hand you don't have to deal with the currently known problems of 70D, say that AFing problem. But then one thing I am sure of, new 70D is going to show up soon and no one knows what that can give you more. Of course you would know that you may need to pay 50% or more on price tag.

So all in all, T6s is a wise choice at about $850 for body only, to arrive at your door by this April.

If I've read the previews correctly the sensor in the 760 is new, if that's the case then
until real world testing is done, and we know more about the IQ of this sensor, that will be the trigger point for many of us.

I am hoping to upgrade to the 760D from my 450D if we get the good news.
