The specs supposedly from a test camera - as ever I suggest a big pinch of salt, but from someone I've had some related info from in the past.

From previous 'test info' I've seen, there are likely one or two major differences from what might appear, but more in software capabilities than new hardware.

"GPS, WiFi"

Does this mean another "semi plastic" body (as I saw the 6D described on this very board just yesterday)?

Lordy, Lordy, the weeping and gnashing of teeth will go on for years! :D

Just another BS rumor to keep people checking the rumor sites. seriously go back and look at the rumor success rate. its depressingly low.

Yes - unfortunately the hit rate of Canon rumours has diminished quite a bit over the last few years. I've not seen really solid info much more than weeks out from a launch for some time.

And yes, I've kept a few pages devoted to rumours since 2004 - long before all the 'rumors sites' proliferated :-)

sorry - didnt mean to be an ass... im just tired of waiting for a 70d or 7d2 and was so hopeful and excited for last week from all the rumors that we'd finally get a 70d just to get 2 rebels. i was hugely disappointed and maybe a bit jaded.

One thing that made me doubt an early 70D was the UK cashback scheme, from the start of this month that runs until the end of May, included the 7D and 70D but not 650D. That said, shortages of the 60D suggested it might be sooner.

I used to be able to look at the timeline of Canon announcements and spot the progression and timing, but once they ditched the 1Ds3 it started getting a lot less predictable (the timeline is about 1/3 down the page I mentioned earlier).

Some things seem more 'obvious' from it (5D4 in 2015?) but I'm always aware of the disclaimer I've long put at the top of most rumour pages;
"We've been keeping tabs on (mostly) Canon rumours for several years and receive all kinds of suggestions - some more believable than others. Please do use your common sense when reading these pages, and remember that they are here for entertainment as much as anything else."

My own 'waiting' is for what may replace or supplement my 2007 1Ds3 for my day to day work - the 1DX just isn't that much of an upgrade, for the work I do (important caveat)

rumor sites generally don't get it right until the day before a release. Take them for what they are which is entertainment in a very slow moving industry. Other than 10 fps, I'd call the latest rumor specs for a 70D.

No one knows, but I'd bet money the 7D II gets dual card slots and more than 19af points this go round.

sometimes it's right, there probably will probably be a 70D and a new 7D
just a question of when
