Canon EOS 70D does not rely on on-chip PDAF, it still has AF sensor from 7D.

True...but apparently it does use on-chip PDAF when doing live view or video and with about a third of Canon lenses, it uses both on-sensor PD and CD in the same situation.  Its an innovative solution and in  its infancy, so it only going to get better I expect/hope.
