I own both a 7D and the 5DIII. The results of the 5DIII are generally so much better, in terms of focus accuracy, color, dynamics and ISO (in RAW). The 7D is hard pressed going above 400 ISO for bird photograpy. With the 5DIII you can take photo's at 1600 ISO without problems, or even higher depending on the circumstances.
But in many cases I need or can use the extra 1.6 crop factor. So having a marriage between the 5DIII type quality, with a APS C camera, and high speed would be great. Basically a top of the line crop camera. I assume the innovative video will be the dual pixel 70D, plus other features?
I will get this the day it gets out.
I agree. I too own both a 7d and 5d3. I find I now use the 5d3 in every situation except daylight sports. I'm anxious to get the next 7d, with better AF and high ISO capabilities in a APS-C format, with IQ at least as good. All other specs are irrelevant, and as a photographer (not videographer) I couldn't care less about video improvements.
