Don't expect much. Even the 5dIII I'm using now seems cheap compared to the 1dIII I used to use - just judging by the Card door sealing. Canon really skimps in this department, IMO.

The 70D isn't intended to be weather sealed. The 7D and the soon to be released 7D Mark ll are weather sealed. I don't shoot in conditions that need weather sealing so the 70D will suit me fine.

Weather sealing shouldn't be a problem for us, as we are fair weather shooters. Just hope the camera gets here soon, as my wife it driving me nuts waiting for it to show up.

Wave: Is this something that's a possible issue?

As I said earlier, I have a T3i. Seriously considering this upgrade.

I do wonder whether it's smart to get any camera as soon as it comes out. Better to hang fire?

Going by all the reviews and my wife has been looking at every one she can find on the Internet. The ones that talk about the weather sealing are saying it is as good or better the weather sealing on my 7D. She hasn't found anything from Canon yet about the weather sealing but she is still looking every day.

I'm really looking forward to getting it but I'm not going to buy it until it comes on sale. I'll have to be patient.

I have patients but my wife only has patients when it something I want to buy. The 70D is going to be her new camera, therefore no patients.

I'm having second thoughts now and considering getting the 7D. It comes on sale for $850 for a refurb now and then. I don't care about video and that seems to be the big thing for the 70D. My one concern is the sensor. My T2i has the same sensor as the 7D so image quality will be the same. Is the 20 mp sensor in the 70D going to be a lot better than the 7D?
