Bad 60D UI continued on 70D...

I am by far not alone. Just that most of those that tried the 60D and didn't like it did what is logical: They didn't buy it... The problem is that the combination of smaller thumb wheel, center 8-way controller replacing joystick and fiddly small button in the middle is only resulting in unwanted actions. Every time I used the thumb wheel on the 60D my focus point jumped all over the place because the 8-way-rocker reacted to the slightest of touches (which are inevitable due to the lack of size) and as I need a fast way to select AF point I configure all my cameras to allow direct focus point selection without having to press the AF selection button. On the 60D this simply was impossible due to the mushy 8-way controller.

As the thumb wheel on the 70D is even smaller I have little hope for that UI to be any more useable - even though it would be desperately needed due to the better AF module.
