70d sample video footage - indoor basketball

Just some random shots done today. All the description is in the Vimeo video.

While the AF feature is amazing, I'm just not sold on the video IQ coming out of the 70d. In this clip I have lifted the shadows and sharpened it a tad in post, shot with a pretty sharp lens (17-55 2.8) and used the "All-I" settings.

I realize it's indoor with crappy lighting and I'm probably spoiled by the 5d3 and have been spoiled with the GH2's I've owned - but still - just seems kind of low resolution to me.

Thoughts?  Am I being too critical?  This certainly was a cinch to setup and shoot, and I didn't have to worry about focus.  I realize the Gh2 was very sharp - perhaps it was worse in low light than I remember?
