I want to commend Canon for putting so much technology in the 70D.

My problem is that I also own a 5DIII. There differences from the 70D don't seem to me to be particularly significant. I haven't yet attempt to compare RAW shots, but there is no comparison that I can imagine for movies as the 70 D seems to provide the same quality with actual AF (though not perfect).

I think these differences are advantages for me with the 5D MIII over the 70D

1. Lower noise at high iso

2. Better IQ

3. More focus points

4. More cross-type focus points

5. Better boost iso

6. Larger view finder

7. Dual card slots

You are getting a slightly higher FPS with the 70D, you might like the flip-out screen, built-in flash, it is smaller and lighter.

Is there any reason for me to keep the 5DIII that any of you can think of rather than sell it?

Full frame is, however, what I really want; and the 5DIII works better in that regard with my lineup of Canon lenses. Perhaps that difference is enough. Yet, traveling with two cameras is a real pain.

If full frame is what you really want then that would be your answer. 

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
