I think the 70D has a slightly smaller grip than the 60D, otherwise, AFAIK, build quality is very similar.

I find 60D to be well-built, ergonomic, and light - an almost perfect balance to my lenses. I never felt it was cheaply made, to the contrary, very robust. Some think it feels cheap compared to heavier, metal-bodied models, but this is not the case. I think lighter bodies are a huge bonus, not a detriment.

I haven't held a 70D yet, I'll stop in B&H soon and compare, report back.

it sure does feel like a smaller grip... maybe that's why I mentioned my old Xsi and it being similar.. to me the 70d is not the same feel as my 60d..

my Canon 60d sure beats using that ol' Petri 7s
