Hello! I do mostly landscape and nature photography. I've been using my little XSi for a while now and my last photo trip made me understand why people have two bodies: I swapped lens at the very least 30 times in 2 days... what a pain.
So I'm looking to upgrade and while I'm at it, AF Microadjustment should be included to get the best out of my 70-200 (has some front focusing).
I was browsing yesterday and saw that both 7D and 70D would fit my needs (I do not shoot any video). I'm having a hard time choosing... anyone have experience shooting with both of them? How do they compare?
If doing landscape & nature, unless full frame is out of the question, I would look at a refurb 6D instead of 7D/70D. I would only look at 7D/70D if you were shooting wildlife routinely. And of them, I'd get the 70D for the superior ISO performance and better MFA adjustment options, just a better overall camera for images. The 7D has the more robust autofocus sytem, but unless you're on the extreme end of wildlife photography (as in birds in flight, super fast ones, not just big birds and sitting birds), you won't need that. The 70D puts more pixels on your image, and slightly better quality with improved ISO performance. But the 6D is where I would truly be looking in your case based on what you said you shoot.
