That might be true in a testing scenario, but few of us shoot in those. Factor in AF, handholding, higher than base iso, less than ideal aperture or shutter speed etc etc etc and the differences become minimal, as so many people who have owned both have attested to.
That doesn't mean there is no point to a 7D, 70D 7D MkII, as a compliment to a 6D etc one might work very well, but the resolution thing really is a red herring unless you are using a heavy tripod, 10X live view manual focus blah blah.........
What the estimates tell you is that even if you have a heavy tripod, base iso etc you will gain only a small increase in reach, and not 60%.
I've been saying that for years and practically nobody agreed with me, it is great to see the winds of change, finally.
I deliberately stayed out of the last 5D MkIII and 7D reach comparison thread, it was interesting that after ironing out some flawed methodology the same conclusions were drawn that I did a long time ago, albeit to the utter disdain and disbelief of the then only 7D owning OP.
I wonder if people will believe me on some of the other contentious stuff I say now too? I doubt it..........
