DxOMark has posted the test results of the recently announced Canon EOS 70D.

What you think?

What it shows is

i) This sensor is a Canon sensor

ii) Nothing has been lost in terms of IQ for the dual pixel AF function.

I think that (ii) is the real take-away that they put a pretty significant feature without breaking anything. As far as we know (haven't really seen the banding detail yet).

There aren't many pictures to play with yet. My feeling is that banding is virtually eliminated in 70D.

I have processed RAW files from DPR.

In ACR I increased Exposure to +3, color NR 25, no sharpening, no luminance NR

70D shadow areas would be much easier to process compared to 60D or 5D2. I don't think DXO measurements reflects this.

I hope you are right.  I haven't downloaded the Beta ACR to look closely at this but IMO if the banding is gone the rest is pretty much a non issue.
