and interesting opinions here. To me, the 70D seems to be an upgrade in some areas and equivalent in others. Now have to wait and see how the IQ turns out.

And it is certainly reasonable to expect a 3 yr newer sensor & processor to deliver better IQ than the older unit. Which is big in terms of upgrade.

It is also reasonable to expect that Canon might not release both the 70D and the 7D Mk II at the exact same moment, and that the 70D was not meant to take over the 7D's spot in the lineup. Those 'upgrades' you mention conveniently overlook downgrades to the existing camera.

If anyone thinks the 70D is a great camera, and it is, then it's the camera they should buy, but not to hope and pray that it will take over the 7D's spot.
