...thanks for the link, however... it doesn't tell us much in terms of AF'ing speed and accuracy differences btw. these two bodies when shot at such distance like shown with the 28mm lens = not exactly a birder's choice !!


Did you find anything better in terms of comparing both cams?

not yet - this is why I'm searching on DPR - usually it takes quite a while for users to form anything resembling a consensus (sometimes it might mean "never" = like constant fracas on whether 60d can focus as speedily and accurately as 7d, which we witnessed on DPR so many times in the past);

what I did learn so far abt. 70d:

  • no spot AF focusing mode (the size of the center FP still unknown);
  • only one C "user settable" on a dial instead of C1, C2 & C3;
  • perhaps more accurate in CDAF mode, but the actual speed (esp. in comparison to the AI Servo on 7d in the Spot AF) info scarce = needs to be reconfirmed;
  • not too good in AF at f/8 and smaller effective apertures;

a link to EN user manual PDF would be very useful, so far I wasn't able to download any
