If my 60D was to BREAK I'd probably buy this to replace it, but I don't think I'll move from the 7D to this.

Imo no one even Canon expects 7D users to buy this as an upgrade. It's targeting different audiences.

My guess is that the AF won't be quite as good, as the 7D is still spec'd out better with its own dedicated AF processor, but the 70D will be about 1 stop better ISO, and very comparable to the 5D2. This new body could be nearly the perfect crop counterpart to the 6D, if it is 1 stop better.

Someone made the point on another thread that the 5D3 uses "only" a single Digic5+, which is what the 70D has. So I wouldn't rule out that AF just yet...

For my first DSLR,the 70D compared to the 7D in size and weight, is smaller and lighter, and has near 7d performance if not better, That camera is my #1 choice for my first DSLR!

And it's a good 1st choice. Don't get me wrong: This new DSLR has plenty to offer. But for someone who already has a 7D, I think it's not enough.

Could make for a great Birding camera. If ISO is clean and servo works.. im good with the 19 pts. the crop factor is a biggie and if its clean and servo works,,,,look out:cool:

That's just what I'm thinking. I need a dedicated birding camera and the 70D could be just the ticket IF it delivers clean images. I really hope so, because the specs sure look like it's a winner.

Canon was absolutely right in putting MFA back in the xxD series. With the 70D, Canon has finally produced a camera that has any appeal in upgrading my 50Ds. I'll probably wait for the 7D MkII though. Based on the 70D specs the coming 7D holds some real potential.

Hope the new APS-C sensor blows everything else on the market away. Time will tell.

I think that for us 7D owners, the only thing that has "plenty to offer" will be a 7D MkII. (Unless, as has been posted above, it's a 5D MkIII, if funds allow for it...)

The 5D3 has its own dedicated AF processor... just like the 7D and 1DX. The DIGIC processor on the 5D3 deals with images, not AF.

The Digitalrev tv will compare it to the 7d and the Nikon d7100, once enough people tell them to do it, they will get it done, maybe Gordon lang at Camera labs may do it too!

get what done?

The main thing lacking from the 70D as far as I can see is focus point expansion mode, which is a boon when shooting BIF, some features are attractive, but I shan't be swapping the 7D for one, but I will be looking forward to see what the 7D2 offers.

Wow! I never belived Canon would put AFMA into an xxD body after 60D. Thankfuly I was wrong. Now there is no need to get 7d. It's 70d for me.

It has it. see this: http://www.dpreview.co​m/previews/canon-eos-70d/6external link

"The EOS 70D's right hand top-plate has almost exactly the same control layout as the 60D, with the sole addition being the AF area expansion button between the front dial and shutter release."
