BTW, just in 2013, Canon has introduced 2 revolutionary cameras: the SL1, the smallest dSLR ever (cheap and excellent for its size selling extremely well in Japan) and the 70d with the dual pixels and the video autofocus (with STM lenses)

The SL1 and the 70D are hardly revolutionary cameras.
Maybe nice... but far from groundbreaking.

You may be right about SL1. I think the 70D is the only DSLR other than medium frame that has 40 million photodiodes. I would have liked them to put that capability to better use, but still groundbreaking.

The PDAF ability is groundbreaking. Putting in 40 million 'photodiodes' less so, in its own right.

I agree with that, but PDAF is mainly useful for video. I would have preferred they apply that proven ability to 30Mp at 9 fps without PDAF. Maybe that will come with 7DII.
