I went from the T2i to the 70D. I was after the video focusing abilities and higher fps for stills. I also expected some noticeable improvement in high iso performance because of the newer sensor, upgraded software, etc.

2 out of 3 isn't bad, I suppose. The video focusing and stills frame rate are sweet. The buffer fills fast at perhaps 12 RAW images, but its far better than the T2i at 3-4. As far as IQ goes, I don't notice a difference- certainly not enough to justify the upgrade. But for improved function, the upgrade was a win.

What do you mean? They are about the same price new.

Exactlly and for the same money you get better AF, Flip & Swivel screen, wifi and 1 less FPS. thats a good trade off for some awesome features.

Okay I guess you mean the opposite then? -> Affordability wise, the 70D beats the 7D in a huge way. Not the other way around like you wrote?

I have purchased my two 7D cameras as Canon refurbished models. I purchased each of them when on sale and I paid less five or so years ago than the cameras are running for now.

I am quite happy with these cameras. There are, however, some caveats:

1. I don't shoot video with my cameras
2. I don't need an articulating LCD
3. I don't need to shoot with extremely high ISO

Thanks for the comments all, I'm finally able to work some OT to get a new body, I think its between the 7d and the 70d. Unless I can find a killer deal on a used 7dii. Wildlife, birds and landscape seem to be my area of most use.... What do you all think?

The 7D uses CF cards, so you can get many more images before filling the buffer. Shooting in jpeg, a buddy of mine could shoot continuously. This will be a benefit for BIFs. Can't say how the autofocus performance compares.

the grey market/street price on the 7D2 is pretty good, but only you can decide. :)


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.

7d is more sturdy and weather sealed, 70d is not. But the latter gives you more features on the video side and live view focusing.. Just for my opinion, if you do not shoot videos, go for the 7d. But if you are considering the video features in the future, 70D is your answer.

As a 60d owner, if I had to upgrade today to either the 7d or the 70d, I would go with the 70d.
For landscapes the swivel screen is amazing - just stick the camera on any place and frame it using live view on the swivel screen. It's one of the features I use most.

At nearly the same price you do get newer sensor technologies. Once you get to know the 18MP sensor it's quite good, but it does have its quirks. I've heard no bad things about the 70d's sensor.

As I own the 5d and the 60d I can add that the user interface of the 60d is very similar to its bigger brother. It might be the way I've set them up, but I can control them the exact same way. I tend to stick in aperture mode and I will have the aperture selected by the little wheel near the shutter button, and I correct my exposure compensation with the big control wheel on the back. (I expect other Canons to work the same way). The top LCD is certainly different but that is not a problem for me.

My research says that they 70D has a little better AF system. I have been taking BIF photos with my 5dii, which has pretty slow AF. I just wonder why I haven't seen the "hype" I guess with the 70d as the 7d seems more popular. Unless I get the 7dii, I will have to learn the limitations of what me the operator can do with high ISO. Any more input would be wonderful. Thanks
