You understand that the 70D Dual Pixel CMOS AF is only for Video (even at it's highest resolution, it is much lower than the sensor resolution) and live view. You have lost nothing with this feature.
Erm... statement is wrong. The dual pixel sensor is the only sensor in the camera, therefore it is used for both stills and video. The Dual-pixel auto-focus is for use in live view, therefore for stills or video, whichever you happen to use.
Which re-iterates my point, video was fine when it did not effect the IQ of stills, now it does and I do not like that. The fact that a much newer model is only as good as the old 7D makes me puke. Nikon and Sony are walking all over Canon on the sensor department.
Now if Canon wanted to sell the 7DII to photographers and videographers alike they should concentrate on a 12-16MP APS-c body and improve DR and Noise but not overdoing it with stupid pixels.
