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.

I bet you're wrong this time. 70D may still use 60D sensor (probably the last model still uses the current Canon 18mp APS-C sensor), but its AF will be at least on modified 7D AF engine. No way Canon will still put 60D AF in 70D after D7100. It also probably still uses LP-E6 battery. 70D will be at least 6 or maybe 7fps.

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