Re: New Camera 7D?

Haven't you missed out that the 70D has;
-a better image sensor
-a better PDAF (more accurate in motion tracking)

I agree with most of your (Karl) assessment but do like the features you have no use for, WiFi and articulated screen. They are extremely useful.
The 7D is not 1DX or 5DIII level standards and misses features that even the 70D has. It needs to be updated. I understand it has qualities and ergonomics that Canon botched on the 70D, Unfortunately I can't recommend the 7D as a new camera as it is behind what current design suggests a modern DSLR should be. I would highly recommend it as a used camera or as a old circa 2008 mechanical design with a few improved features and bug fixes.
