Is the 70D announcement inevitable for the 2013 show? Major new features? Will a 7DII or 7D replacement be announced as well? What major changes?

We are definitely very close to the announcement of a new 1.6x camera from Canon.
No idea, though, if this will be a 70D, a 7DII, or something new in between.

The 7D is now 3+ years old, so it's the next logical candidate for an upgrade.

At the same time, the 60D is selling at Rebel prices right now - even though it's spec'd better.
So, it might actually make more sense for Canon to update the 60D first.

Finally, it's also possible that Canon might introduce a new camera that will be a replacement for both the 60D and 7D.

One thing that I'm certain about is that a new 1.6x camera, whatever it is, will be announced in Jan/Feb next year.
