I feel it's a waste of money upgrading from one Canon rebel to the next rebel or even a 60D to the 70D.
I suggest that you upgrade only to a larger sensor body.
It is just a waste of money to buy another camera having the same size sensor IMO.
Upgrade your glass instead.
Your are right, it is a waste of money to upgrade from a 60D to a 70D, or even more so to upgrade a 650D to a 700D.
It is a different story if the upgrade is from a 50D or even 40D to a 70D, or from a 450D to a 700D. Actually it is a waste of money to upgrade any electronic device after one or two years, be it a Canon camera or a Nikon or a Sony or whatever; or be it a smartphone a nav-system, a homecinema. There are no big improvements from one model to the next one.
Everybody has to find his own way of replacing and updating equipment. For me as an amateur photographer the target age for a camera is 5 years. Right now I'm replacing my 7 1/2 year old 350D with a 70D, this is a nice upgrade, and well worth the money. In 5 more years the 90D will be out, and if I wait another 2 years, then it will be the 100D.....
