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

Get a Hakuba hand grip or similar. Once you get used to it, grip size becomes almost irrelevant, as the camera is basically attached to your hand.
