I recall reading a while back when the EOS 100D (Rebel SL1) was announced (and being slagged off by some) that there's no such thing as a bad camera, but it depends if it has the features you personally want.
I've been looking to replace my 40D and for me personally
the 70D is pretty much all I want. Yes, I'd have liked built in GPS too & a magnesium body (which I don't think it has?) & joystick like the 40D but I can live without them.
An earlier poster mentioned only one CF function - I beleive my 40D has 3 but I'n not sure as I've never used even one. Most CSC cameras that come out don't interest me as I'd never buy a camera (even a compact) without a viewfinder but it clearly doesn't bother many buyers....
So, it's all down to personal preferences - what do YOU consider important features. For me personally, the 70D ticks pretty much all the boxes & I'll be getting one later in the year once the dust settles & reviews are in
