Could you let me have a link.

There were two interviews floating around last month with Mr Maeda, Canon's camera boss.

In one of them he said that the 70D is coming 'without fail'.
And in the other one, Mr. Maeda said that while Canon is developing a 7D successor, they are looking beyond a simple spec refresh.

Of course he did not share any details - but he did confirm both cameras.

I agree with you that there don't seem to be room for two crop cameras in the $1000-2000 price range. That's why I think that the 70D will be a sub-$1000 camera, actually.

Canon is making an obvious effort to make some of their gear more compact - and I think that the 70D will follow this trend, becoming smaller and lighter than the 60D.
In other words, the 70D will get Rebel-ize further and will be priced at $950-1000.

The 7DII will have surely have a new sensor but will mostly keep the 7D specs - and will be announced at $1500-1600, IMO.
