 well this new AF system is likely going to be Canon only via patent so perhaps its you that should be a bit worried about your investment in a system that may now be technologically outdated in a still maturing(and loss making) market.

+1 - couldn't have said it better. The patent entered by Canon already has been posted yesterday IIRC, can't find the link currently. But Canon will have the drivers seat for on chip PD (as much as it can do without optical elements in the light paths) for some time to come. Which is going to suck for the competition.

And the 70D has got the OVF which makes it a best of both worlds camera. For applications that require speed and a tracking/predictive AF the traditional PD AF which still is leaps and bounds ahead of the best on chip PD. And the best on chip PD for applications where video subject tracking is important.
