70d is just not enuff to make me upgrade from my 60d... putting heavy emphasis on Video just doesn't do anything for me in a DSLR... lack of built-in GPS as we travel a lot also puts a damper on it...should have had a second SD card slot and follow Nikon's lead..

This is really unbelievable. So some ppl do prefer GPS over video. I thought, that my memories are about the photos and/or eventually videos. What is all that obsession with GPS? Does our memory does not serve us well, to not remember, where did we take our photos? And is that so important, to have exact photo position on a map?

Well, no offense, I know, that each of us has different needs, but GPS is not what I lack with the 70D. I would prefer one stop better ISO instead for e.g.

waiting for the 7dMkII if and when it shows its face and hopefully the stats will allow me do my upgrade...

my Canon 60d sure beats using that ol' Petri 7s

But you understand GPS is orders of magnitudes easier to implement than getting one stop better ISO?  Canon is still playing the old game of controlled released of new features and dumbing down lower models while their lesser (loosely speaking) competitors are going all in.
