Nikon may have beat Canon to the punch but Canon has already scheduled a launch date for what is likely to be a new Canon 70D. And while many of the specifications of the 70D are still unknown, there are several factors that may allow this to be an interesting matchup.

The Nikon D5200 Kit is now available on Amazon.com & Adorama for $896.95 with the 18-55mm kit lens (Amazon.com is offering 2% cash back). With a considerable 50% increase in megapixels, faster shooting rates, 39pt focus system hybrid style focus system (9 Cross type focus points), and a stereo microphone, the D5200 offers a modest increase in quality over its predecessor.
The one stop increase in light for $200 less will make many photographers and videographers drool, however, is the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC sharp enough, fast enough, and built well enough to go toe to toe with Canon 24-70 f/4 IS L glass? Let’s find out as we go hands on with these two lenses.
The Canon 24-70 f/4 IS is here and sharper than ever. Also part of this new upgrade was a hefty price upgrade, not so much from the retail price of the 24-105mm f/4 IS, but because the 24-105 can be found at greatly reduced prices due to the packaging of this as the kit lens in so many Canon cameras. Either way, the Canon 24-70 f/4 IS is now here and here to stay so let's take a look at the performance this has to offer.
The amount of precision that goes into making a lens is simply amazing. This close up look inside the Sigma lens factory will give you a new appreciation for the glass in front of your camera and for the beautiful landscape in Japan.
