over the past week handled the 70d...not sure if it is just me but I thought it felt more like a Rebel series camera like my old Xsi (450d) than my 60d which I still like a lot.. was looking to upgrade... actually wanted to go one-step up to a new 7DMkII if it will ever show its face... not looking to go FF

at the same time also played with the Nikon 7100.. overall felt a lot better than the 70d... but NOT going to switch ..sticking with Canon..also NOT into taking videos with my DSLR's so not a priority and any hype about video is a 'nothing' for me.. I'll stay with my Flip and 850is for the little video that I due on occasion

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

I got my 70D yesterday and I have to agree that compared to my 20D (quit laughing   ), it really does feel cheaply made.

Not sure what I'm going to do.

I did not get the same sense of "cheapness" in going from my 20d to the 70d. I know some of the ruggedness of the 20d went into the 7d when the line split, but my new 70d still feels like a pretty solid camera and I would not compare it to the rebels.
