I haven't read every post here, so my comments may be redundant.  I am generally pleased with these rumored specifications. Sure, more MP might be nice, but other image quality factors are more important to most (but not all) people, and until a camera has been released for testing, we will not know how good the new sensor is.

The feature set of the 60D made it a bit of a hit for budget-minded videographers.  If this rumored new live-view/movie focusing system in the 70D is as good as it sounds it may be, then the 70D will be a worthy successor to the 60D.  While I am primarily a stills photographer, I have been using my 60D for video, and an improved live view focusing system would certainly attract me to the 70D.

The other features are pretty much what I had expected to see on the 70D, neither a disappointment nor a big surprise.  If these are indeed the 70D specifications, AND if the sensor is improved in more ways than just a couple more MP, AND if the camera handling is up to snuff, then this looks like a worthy successor to the 60D, while still leaving room for an even better 7D Mark II.
