Re: After 4 years, I'm back

Having owned one, I was pretty familiar with it.  So familiarity is one factor.

The 80D has some additional features; but I specifically wanted to avoid the DIGIC 6 processor.   In the G7X, G16, and S120, the results show lower contrast in flat light than with the DIGIC 5 and Digic 7 processors.  This seemed to be confirmed looking at images from the 70D and 80D on the review sites with comparitors.  A while back, I did order a refurbed 80D and wasn't crazy about it.  With a 24 MP sensor, noise is a bit higher.

I also noted that Canon refurbed 70D's bring higher prices than 80D's and sell out quicker.

You might also wonder why I didn't opt for a mirrorless camera.
