Get the 7D or wait for the rumored 70D?
Jun 5, 2013

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!
