The 70D's plastic body is just a reflection of where canon currently sees the top end of APS-C and what it has to do to make a profit from it.

Wrong. As the 70D is the successor of the 60D with SD-card, swivel LCD and plastic body this is a reflection of where Canon currently sees the mid range APS-C - especially as the 70D is lacking in many of the pro grade features that already relegated the 60D to the mid range tier.

So your view on things is severely marred by your lack of understanding what product placement means. The 70D is meant to replace the 60D, it follows suit in features and has been upgraded as usual for such a mid level camera - it isn't meant to replace the 7D, in important areas it does not even come close to the 4 year old camera!
