There is also a suggestion that Canon may indeed soon announce the EOS 80D (at CP+?). I always wrote that the EOS 80D will come in Summer; I might have been wrong.

No specs for the EOS 80D leaked. I am somewhat puzzled about a February announcement for the EOS 80D. In any case, stay tuned since we will soon know more.
