I for one can imagine doing landscapes wide open in poor light, and the object doesn't have to be too far away for the phenomenon to be visible either.

Wouldn't you use a longer exposure to compensate for less light?

A landscape with just a thin stripe in focus?

Ok, please post an example of a photo you've taken like that in the past.

Together with the overexposing of non Canon lenses when wide open it's a rather serious mess-up for such an expensive camera.

First the 70D is a mid priced enthusiast camera. Second if you want to use it with other than EOS lenses that is your prerogative, but, Canon wouldn't even guarantee a camera would work with current 3rd party EOS compatible lenses, much less old manual lenses. As you've already been told by Canon the 70D does not support those lenses. If you want to use them you'll have to learn how to compensate for them.

I agree if one is not using a Canon lens they are on their own. Not implying many non Canon lens are not good, or can't get good results.
