If you don't print and want to post your pictures to facebook, maybe the 70D will be a great camera for you. Or you could just use a cellphone.

The implication (but not the entailment) is that, if you do print, the 70D won't be a great camera. That's right, of course. All the 20" X 30" prints on my walls from my 6MP 300D, 8MP 20D, and 18MP 7D are worthless. I didn't realize it at the time, but now that Nikon has a 24MP crop camera, all those prints look terrible. I must remember to correct people who admire them. "No", I'll tell them, "despite what you just told me, these prints don't look great. Don't you know that you need at least 24MP to make a good-looking print? These would look fine on Facebook, perhaps viewed on an iPad, but I must burn these prints immediately."
