They've done the same thing with the other body line upgrades, why they move buttons and change the minor controls for no apparent benefit is beyond me. The zoom/magnifying feature comes to mind on the 5d3.)
Yes, that one is my pet peeve too. Perhaps they've heard this feedback, because the 70D restores the use of the "classic" zoom buttons.
On the positive side, cameras with the "new" zoom layout (5D3, 6D, etc.) can be programmed to show the image immediately at 100% when you press the magnify button. It's a legitimate 100% view--so you can really see what's going on (unlike my 1D4 or 5D2 where even at max zoom you can't really see what's happening). I've even done quick MFA calibrations this way.
