Re: +1 with Spartan. Probably yet another new battery to force you buy new grip

I share you sentiment. 7D was the last canon that offer a quantum leap over its previous camera (50d) in feature & capability and that was 3 years ago. Since the 7D, every canon is just a mild warm-over from previous generation. 60d was a downgrade on purpose to differentiat from 7d, but every rebel since then...:

- Canon T2i is a 18mp version of 15mp T1i with a Mic Input

- Canon T3i is just a T2i + articulate LCD

- Canon T4i is a T3i with Touch-sceen, and a hybrid AF that show minimal improvements

I suspect 70d is a just a 60d with a touch-screen + a new battery design to force you to buy another new battery grip. It'll probably have the same circular 9 points AF again.

Hopefully I'm wrong and well see some major improvement in 70d, but I'm not holding my breath for canon any longer.

I seriously doubt Canon is going to change the LP-E6 battery just yet.  Besides, the battery grip could be redesigned regardless.
