I can't decide to purchase the canon 7d now or wait for the 70d in September. Does anyone have thoughts on this? I have been waiting for a good while saving for a great camera and had almost decided until I heard about the 70d. So with it being new and the 7d a few years old... what do you think? Janet

Personally, I would wait for the 70d if you can. It's cheaper and pretty much an all around better camera. Stat for stat, the only advantages the 7D has is that it shoots 1 frame per second faster, which is insignificant compared to the numerous improvements in the 70d, and the 100% coverage viewfinder compared to the 98% coverage viewfinder in the 70d. While 100% coverage is nice to have, it isn't a super huge deal to miss the 2%, particularly when looking at 11% more image data (5% bigger in each direction), the wifi capability, the live view phase detect auto focus, the DIGIC 5 vs DIGIC 4 processor, the newer sensor, etc, etc.
