Thats my conclusion:
- Aside from focussing during video, rotating lcd (if you want it and I don't for wildlife), and being able to set the low shutter on autoiso, the 7d is better or even. Particularly for wildlife.
- focus speed is about the same ( i tested it)
- 1fps better for 7d
- dot focus not in 70d [really big deal to me]
- no c1,c2,c3 [really big deal to me]
- sd limits 70d to 15 in burst with twice the time to clear buffer (I have tested) [really big deal to me]
- not as good weather sealing
- uses different remote...Show more →
I agree with the above, and with DSLR technology going the way it was a few years ago, if you would have told me that the 7D I bought in the fall of 2009 would be able to stand up, especially ISO-wise, to a brand new Canon crop-sensor 4 years later, I would have said no way. Maybe crop sensors have hit a technological wall for still shots, and the performance advancements really are going to be primarily in the full-frame market.
I realize this is all speculation with regards to a 7D2 someday, but I honestly thought the 70D was going to be good enough ISO-wise to tempt me from my 7D, at least for indoor shooting. From what I've seen so far, that isn't the case. Any my wife's SL1 and our EOS-M are fine for video needs.
