The 80D also has weather sealing. So does the 70D. I've heard the 7d & 7dII is better sealed but never to what extent.

Read the lensrental article that TeamSpeed linked to actually find out.

Is it more seals or better seals? A seal either seals or it doesn't. That is only until submersion comes into play, and then the type of seal would make a difference. Quite frankly, I'm not saying that the 7dii isn't better built. I'm saying that the xxd limes are built well enough to go the distance. I personally don't shoot in the rain, so sealing is kind of a non issue to me. I'm 42, and I remember always liking the hwavier , weighty bodies. No more, and its not because of my age. I think I have a camera with me for longer periods of time, and the lighter the better as long ad its well balanced. As for joysticks vs dials etc. I catch on quickly to whatever I'm using, so either one would be fine for me.

I guess it doesn't really matter to me. The amount of weather sealing on the 70D never failed me and if I were worried about it, I would just use a rain cover anyway. Would do the same with any camera unless it were in an underwater case. So, if the 80D is at least as sealed as the 70D, I'm good. :lol:

I don't use the flip screen very often on the 60D but I have found it useful a few times when it was not easy for me to lie on the floor to get the angle of shot I wanted ߘ. The AF on live view is very poor therefore I very rarely use it.

It's quite handy being able to twist the screen to protect the screen when storing.

If it is, the sealing is minimal. I got dowsed by a rogue wave, camera got splashed, and salt water entered the top plate via the built-in flash. Had to replace the entire top of the camera.

It's the number of seals. If you read the article, you'll be able to see pictures of this.

Yup, it's like the difference between the 6D and the 1DX, which is to say, quite a world of difference. The XXD and 6D cameras are at best "weather resistant" I would think.

The weather sealing of the 70D/80D is significantly less than the 7D2 which is one of the best sealed cameras Canon has ever made.

Weather sealing is an obvious benefit to the 7D2. However, there's still an advantage in autofocus performance and FPS to consider. Whether that is enough to avoid erosion of the 7D2 to 80D is to be determined. With an intro price of $1099 vs the 7D2's $1799 (currently discounted to $1499), and expected better IQ with the 80D, I suspect that only die-hard sports, action and wildlife photographers will opt for the 7D2.

The intro price of the 80D is $1299 I believe.

I collect watches, many of them divers. Those seals probably need to be changed every so often. The all dry, harden and crack.

There were several early references to the price being $1299. Obviously Canon decided to go with a lower price when they officially released it.

Maybe. But at the time the camera was only a month old, and the 70D has only been around for less than three years.
