I rarely get involved in these arguments, but guys -- the topic here is the 70D. The competition from Nikon is the D7100. *IF YOU MUST CONTINUE THIS DIALOGUE OFF TOPIC OF THE THREAD* then let's see what the 70D *can do* and where it falls short, and compare it to the D7100, not a D600 or D800 - -those interested in the 70D aren't likely to be looking in those price levels.
And PLEASE remember that DR is only *A PART* of the equation here -- there are other factors to consider in those DxO results -- DR isn't the only factor in a sensor. SO -- PLEASE stop comparing both Canon's higher line (5DIII, 6D) and Nikon's higher line (D600, D800) cameras in a 70D thread -- there are other threads for you guys to go.
Instead please bring your expertise and experience down to these lower layers where both the D7100 and the 70D are "below" this high level camera line discussion. Thanks -- and looking forward to some civilized and meaningful insight -- what can we expect the 70D to be limited by (the actual DR limits here), and harder for those that are so in love with the Nikon line -- what GOOD THINGS can the we expect also from the 70D in this part of the camera's feature set???. Please?
you are right on this one,people get confused with numbers AND COMPARES ONE BRAND TO ANOTHER, why not mention Pentax, Sony, Olympus while you are at it!
Get outside and take pics, the tool is not that important, specially at $1149
Still is a powerful one, indeed!
Light is the matter, and a few good lenses! and artistic sense!
