Plenty to be excited about :)
1

- New sensor - nobody can say this is just another repackaged 18Mpix.

- Faster Processor Yeay!

- More powerful AF system than my aging 60D

- WiFi useful for remote control with a smart phone

- New dual pixel AF promises much faster Live View AF

- Built-in HDR similar to 6D

- Interesting multi-exposure mode

- Same battery system, kudos to Canon for not making a new model

- Same useful touch screen

I thought my days with APS-C sensor DSLR ends with 60D and T4i, but with 70D specs I get excited again.

I can envision a 6D + 70D + SL1 line-up by end of year.

Now the price will determine whether it is a buy now or buy later.

60D was initially $1100 body only. I am hoping the 70D would fall in the same price or less.
