Large pinch of salt required I think.

Exactly why are people disappointed? What do you want, 36MP and 14FPS?

20MP is *plenty* for a crop sensor. As long as Canon has made some good improvements to the sensor, that is all the 7D really needs...

With the new LCD, new features such as the newer MA abilities and whatever else they may add... It will be great if under $2,000... Again, as long as they made sensor improvements, it will be a great successor.

All they need to do to make sensor improvements is ditch video along with the AA filter :D There, I did it for them :)

If true, this is sad. After 5 years we get a 70D with the zero removed. Really? If Canon would have released this 3 years ago they might have gotten away with a little grumping but by waiting 5 years to upgrade I believe expectations are quite a bit higher especially now with Sony releasing the A6000 which at least on paper is a much better camera for a lot less cost.

If they do come out with a revolutionary new sensor that significantly improves IQ, then it could be an interesting upgrade but I'm sensing the 70D sensor.

20MP points towards the 70D sensor, not the total revolution some want that ("shadow noise"/"banding"/etc).

19pt AF points towards an evolution of the 7D AF and not the "1DX/5D3 AF system in a crop camera" some people want.

A buffer count that isn't less than the old model! (That this suggests 15 when the 7D can do 25 makes me suspicious about these specs being true. That or it's from a test camera out in the field and they haven't yet optimised that bit of the firmware)

I forgot about the 70D personally... Yeah, hopefully that is not reused (but given Canon, it will be!).

There really isn't a high frame rate crop camera out on the market. There isn't really a direct competitor to this camera.

But without an improved AF system, I would consider it a bit disappointing.

The noise is nearly identical between the 70D and 7D according to all the lab tests. IQ is very close as well.

The new SOny A7000 shoots 10fps and claims exceptionally fast AF and for $560. When a mirrorless entry level camera smokes your top of the line crop camera, it's time to rethink your strategy.

No surprise there. It is crystal clear that Canon completely ignores the competition. They think they exist in isolation.

Wait.. What?? Someone has tested the unannounced 7DII?

the Sony a6000 trumps this camera for 1/2 the price. Thats why it's disappointing.
