But, are there focus issues with the 80D?

I'll wait for the thread! :D

Had this on preorder, , ended up cancelling. . Gonna wait for the real world use reviews..there needs to be a significant improvement over 70d. Other wise not for me , might as well get a refurbished 70d at 699.. in the mean time going to give panasonic a try

I guess I'm weird, as I tend to buy bodies 3~4 years after their release. So while the rest of the world marches on with the latest tech, I tend to grab yesteryear's tech. I still watch these new things, because it's nice to see how they mature and stand out over time. The 80D actually is very interesting. I had virtually zero interest in the 70D because of it's short comings, and instead, went with a 7D a while back because for what I shoot, it just made more sense. But, now, the 80D has features that are interesting to me. So maybe in 2 years, if it's on Canon Refurb, I might end up with one. Who knows.

Very best,

I do tend to agree with you Malveaux. I actually buy the bodies that are older too. I tend to buy them new right after the newer model comes out. I bought my 60d new 2.5 years ago for $599 from b+h. Honestly, I don't really need a new body. I don't shoot high fps almost ever and this thing has never skipped a beat. In reality I am probably just going to keep ticking along with the two bodies I own and wait as you will.

My primary interest in this or a newer camera is for underwater work. If it would fit into and work in a 70D housing would make it very interesting. It sounds like it is just enough different that it won't. Now the 5D3 and the 5DS work in the same housing. If the 5D4 would work there I would be really interested as I could start with the 5D3 and get a 5D4 down the road with the prices drop. The housing costs more than the camera so some flexibility there is really attractive. I can use T2is only in my housing. I think if I am going to make a new plunge into a housing it has to be a big difference so maybe waiting for the next FF is the way to go.

If you hover your mouse over the body comparison shots here http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Ca​non-EOS-80D.aspx (external link) it looks as though the 70D and 80D are very similar in terms of button location (and they're almost exactly the same size overall). There's a reasonable chance it might work in a 70D housing.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

It is close, thanks for that. There are a few things I see that would be a challenge like the live view lever is in a different orientation. Sometimes the housing vendors can make small adjustments. For the most part they are very precise to minimize empty space inside them which leads to unwanted buoyancy. Can't wait to see!

What short comings?

Question was asked 17 hours ago, what short comings?

70D is a great all around DSLR as a mid-range speced camera

My brothers brand new 70d has the problem. You put the flash on and the pic looks severely underexposed in ettl. Better off shooting at 12800 iso.

I know it a crap shoot but has he ever played with the wireless flash functions? I used to use that on my 70D and then when I put the flash on for a different shoot it was messed up and I had to reset the flash functions. But this was a long time ago adn I may be mistaken. Just an idea.

I could actually test mine here at home with various flashes (I think I have 4-5 different kind).

I've tested my 70D with 3 of my flashes: Canon 600EX-RT, Yongnuo YN565EX, and YN568EX. They all work fine bounced. I tried 4-5 different settings for each flash (varying aperture, shutter speed, and ISO) and as long as I didn't choose something extreme where the flash was underpowered even at full power, they all came out properly exposed. I did this in ETTL mode, not manual of course.

Another trivial idea, did your brother use it on auto ISO with the flash or manual ISO? Auto is 400 no matter what. In this way it is possible that the flash with defaulting to ISO 400 was still not strong enough to do what ISO 12800 did with no flash (an example you mentioned.) Because this is easily possible for larger spaces, halls.
