FF! FF everywhere!

60D high ISO performance? From DPR's studio scene comparison, at ISO1600 is already noticeable and the 70D is hardly an improvement. Even @ ISO3200, the K30 raw looks much cleaner vs the 60D and 70D @ ISO1600.

The Canon 70-200 LII IS f2.8 is debatable, there are a lot of reviews there that the new Tamron's 70-200 bested it and the old SP AF 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro also bested the L IS (even with the noisy screw drive motor, it is snappy w/ Pentax) and is more than $1000 cheaper.

The funny thing is, the TS is just looking for a decent, good quality, clean high ISO, affordable APSC DSLR.

There is no such thing a "Pro" level gear, just Pro level work.
