A great new 70D is coming

At least I hope so.

I just read the DPR Nikon D7100 review.  In addition to a gold medal award, the review was full of superlatives including "fast, accurate AF" and "outstanding image quality."  The negatives were largely related to video.  In addition the buffer capacity cannot keep up with bursts with raw captures from the 24 mp sensor.

According to the rumors, Canon was going to release a 70D which was basically a rebadged 60D with an 18 mp sensor.  Also according to the rumors, Canon is delaying until they can get an improved sensor in production.  Of course, the rumors may be totally false.  In any case, it does appear that the D7100 is a solid, gold medal camera and Canon will need to release something roughly equivalent in order to be competitive.  Even if the Canon product falls short, it will need to be at least close to the D7100 in order to get a $1000 plus sales price.

At this point I am sure we will see a good and hopefully great new 70D from Canon.  I would like to believe that will happen well before the end of this year.
