Yes of course.

There is nothing "of course" here!


Nope, for me lighter isn't better, for me it's far worse.

newer better sensor

That still needs to be shown.

better AF esp. in live

Which is important for video shooters. I never used my DSLR for video and probably never will. My hobby is photographing, that has completely different challenges than recording video.

newer better processor

Which is better in what way to a system with 2 picture processors and 1 AF processor which operate in the 7D and which happens to be faster, offer more configuration options, has a larger buffer? So that one is a dud...

new features not on the old unit.

You mean features like the 98% viewfinder with 95% magnification on the 70D which clearly is better than the 100% viewfinder with 100% magnification on the 7D.
