You have to keep in mind that you're comparing a camera introduced in 2009 with one being introduced in 2013. Obviously, the technology is going to be a newer and improved in the 2013 camera compared to the 2009 camera. So even though the 70D is positioned below the 7D, it will have many aspects to it that are definite upgrades over the much older 7D. Frankly, I do think the 70D is an upgrade over the 7D.

Only one team has been at bat yet and you are declaring a winner. Of course the 70D has some things that aren't on the 7D. The 7D is not carved in stone - guess what, Canon is not going to just keep making it eternally "as is".

70D looks in some ways like an upgrade but it is not the replacement for the 7D. Trust me.
