I got an Email from Adorama announcing Canon's new D70. Some of the features are interesting, especially the new dual pixel sensor and the implications of that for focusing. It will be interesting to see how Nikon responds.

It's a 70D.

Nikon has been using a on-chip phase detection AF for some time already - in the Nikon 1 mirrorless ILC system.

I think the 70D is a response to the D7100. That's the camera to which the 70D is currently being compared.
I've been predicting on Nikonians for over 2 years that the D400 (or rather, the successor to the D300s - whatever the model designation turns out to be) will show up in 2013. Initially I predicted it would be announced in Q1 2013, but now I'm convinced it will show up in late Q3/early Q4. Stay tuned.
I'd bet real money that the Nikon D400 will have integrated WiFi and integrated GPS, a revision of the stellar D7100 sensor (or the same sensor - it's difficult to understand where such an amazing sensor can be improved except for even better high ISO noise performance), a version of limited on-chip phase detect AF for movie mode and live view, a new Expeed CPU, a 1.2mp or 1.4mp rear LCD, 100% viewfinder, blah, blah, blah. In other words, everything but the kitchen sink. Specmanship for its own sake. It's gotten completely silly out there.

Listen Olivier . . . except for ME, nobody - and I mean NOBODY - is allowed to touch my Nespresso machine. It's the best thing to come out of Switzerland since the Rolex Submariner 16610, Victorinox Explorer, Wenger Minathor, and the Caran D'Ache RNX.316 ballpoint.
If I find anyone from Nikon or Canon messing with my Nespresso machine and I'll bury them in my back garden.

Personally I'm holding out for the gas grill model.. and automatic hands to hold the napkin
I suppose they will retain the feature that sets Canon apart, the long history of all models having banding and artifact problems that limit post processing options. Canon has been running behind in the sensor wars for a number of generations. The other feature that sets the EOS line apart will likely be retained, a plasticy cheap feel. Not interested....
