Just to add to my previous post, whilst I'll stick with the Sony a6000 for now, I think the 70D looks like a camera I'd be happy to go for if i needed another camera. I do astro photography and I'm sure that Canon is still the leader in that field of use (within dSLR cameras...), however as I'm just waiting for a Moravian Instruments G2-8300 astro imaging CCD camera that will serve me better than any dSLR, therefore there is no other real advantage I can see, especially if I consider the weight and size of the 70D camera and the lenses that I would need to come with it...
If Canon reads this, this might be a good feedback for them to see why they lost a Canon dSLR user this time...

I've been using a sony a6000 for half a year. I cannot agree with Tuan. The Sony a6000 is a sturdy piece of equipment, comfortable to hold and it realy does everything you throw at it, except touchscreen & GPS. I used to have a Canon 40D then a 7D, but the weight & size really bothered me. With the sony I can have both the wide & tele lenses with me in my pocket. It also amazed me when it could autofocus on some bright stars at night, and I did that from inside the house from my samsung S5 phone, whilst the camera was setup in the garden. I guess something similar could be achieved with the 70D.
Regarding image quality, I think Canon can produce cleaner, smoother images at the same ISO. If I was a professional photographer, I would probably stick with Canon, but as I'm not and mostly I would use the images on a computer screen, those 24MP images look just as good as any Canon image would... Once again, my experience is based on the latest 7D, not 70D...
