I really like single point for this example. You aim directly at your daughter and she will be the focal point of your photo.

Kind of an abstract thing, if it's a bit too much on the abstract side, that's water flowing over a plant.

Some puppy pictures -- usually use the 5DIV but brought out the 70D and rediscovered it.

Today on Independence Pass, around 12,100'. Para-skiing I guess this would be.

It was gloomy, I still had a polarizer on from some previous water shots so it cut the light down even more, hand held, slow shutter speed, the deer were moving instead of cooperating, so the second one is blurry, but I still like it - feels outdoorsy to me.

I know it's 2019 but I'm happy to say that I just got myself a used 70D as a backup to my 6D2. I was gunning for a used 80D but found a good deal on a used 70D instead. The price difference is about enough to buy me a 50/1.4 or 85/1.8 but I'll be using the money saved for some house expenses for now. Apart from the price, I also opted for the 70D over the 80D for the ff reasons:
-high ISO is very close between the two
-I'm not really after the DR improvements
-19 AF points are a bit easier than 45 (weird, but I plan to teach my 6y/o with this camera so less is more for him...for now)
-colors seem to be better on the 70D than the 80D

It hasn't seen much action yet but I'm hoping to take it out with the family in a day or two. My 24/2.8 IS USM is the one attached to it but the 35/2 IS USM should be fun too since I don't have a 50mm in my kit.

You coulda been at F4 to increase your chances, and center point AF if you were not. Ditch that polarizer!

Having owned both and a 5dIV, I will say that the 80d is a step in the right direction of improvement in the right hands. Any/all color related perceived issues go away if you're shooting in a .raw format and making adjustments accordingly.

Having shot thousands on both cameras, the 80d files are indeed cleaner at all ISO's from real world experience. I'd say it would be like gaining around 2/3rds of a stop; and yes, I'm aware of the graphs out there that say otherwise when you're above ISO800; again, I like going off real world experience which takes into account how well the end results look after working on a file.

Obviouisly you wouldn't get some shots over others without the lenses you need, but strictly comparing the two, the 80d in the right hands will yield equal to improved results.
