Am I wrong to be jealous of the upcoming 70D when I have the 5D mk3?

I am very upset that the 5D does not have a reticulating screen. And now I am really jealous of the fact of the 70D will have automatic focus. As you can probably tell I am more into video than I am into the photo aspect of the camera. I suppose the downsides to getting a 70D would be the crop factor and not having the same wide-angle capabilities of my current lenses. Also there is no headphone jack 70D.

I'm going to assume the new camera will be fairly similar in picture quality. The other aspect but I'm wondering how is the lowlight capability of 70D. I already saw a video with the new camera showing how incredible it is with moire.

Am I crazy for wanting to sell my 5D to get the 70D?
