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.

Hi Sam,

Could it be you mistaken weighing exposure for locked af point(s) in evaluative?

No, I was confusing spot-metering, which the 60D has, with spot-AF, as I mostly use center-point focusing and they are quite similar. I don't really get the difference between centerpoint and spot AF, perhaps someone can clarify?

See the post by Jerry-astro a little further up this thread for a good explanation. Or download the 7D manual from the Canon site. I find spot AF to be very useful in quite specific circumstances. I don't use it often, but when I do, I'm really glad to have it. And spot can work with any of the focus points, not just the center point.
