No 100% viewfinder, slower fps, slower card writing speed, slower card format, less durable shutter, less viewfinder magnification, less usable body (lacking many direct access controls), smaller, lacks the dedicated AF processor and some important AF modes - so no, the 70D is for the most part quite a severe downgrade on the 7D...

I would agree. For me the biggest kicker is the plastic body. I also dislike the 60D/70D's multi function controller. You have to move your thumb way down to change AF points on the fly. I much prefer the separate stick. In my case, I cannot do it without taking my face away from the finder because my cheek blocks access to the new style controller on the 60D/70D.

Lets hope that the 7D2 materializes.
