The way I see it, if the 70D were a replacement for the 7D it would have spot AF (and the other advanced PD AF features that didn't carry over).

60D has spot AF, I would assume 70D has it as well.

Really? I've never seen a mention of it in posts or the DPR review of the 60D. But, I don't have the 60D, so I'm not an expert.

Edit: I've just double-checked the DPR reviews of the 7D and the 60D. On the specifications page, under AF point selection, spot focusing is specifically mentioned for the 7D, but not for the 60D. It's a feature of the AF module in the 7D. AFAIK the 60D's AF is the same as the 50D, which I had, and which definitely didn't have spot AF.
