Get the 7D or wait for the rumored 70D?
1

Hello all!

Well I've been enjoying my T4i (and my T3i before that) and have taken some really amazing pictures with them both. However, I find myself wanting a bigger camera with more controls on it and also something that may shoot a little faster for the boat, car, and motorcycle races I go to. I don't really consider the 60D to be that much better than the T4i I have now so I was looking at the 7D. That truly looks to be a great camera and was just wondering if it would be a good upgrade for me or if I should wait for the rumored 70D? My only concerns are that the 7D is a little older (3 1/2 years i think?) and I just want to make sure with it being that old that it would still be considered a good upgrade for me? On the other hand I have to also consider cost as I'm sure the 70D will cost a pretty penny too and I'm not too sure I could afford that. So I'm just looking for some opinions.

Thanks!
