I found it very easy to get use to.

Mallard Duckling.... kind of neat how the water drops bead on it's head...
and nowhere near as cute, a Common Merganser s***ting on the rock...
This is really starting to get ridiculous, who needs a 1200 mm equivalent in a body that's impossible to hold still??
Superzoom compacts have moved away from usefulness to marketing gimmick IMHO.
There are several members on here who have bought and seem to like the SX50, and it is a 1200mm equivalent.
Once you change the options under the Process tab, the contextual menu choice will use those options.
Ps. Don't get too used to using the Process tab. If you do, you'll have to unlearn that behavior at some point in the near future, assuming you keep current on upgrades. Just sayin'.
I'm waiting for the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism Band of Banding-Hunting Brothers to mention that it has obvious pattern banding at +10stops DEC & +1000 fill-light, as confirmed by Professor Professorson, PhD E.E., when pixel-voyeured at 800%...
Well, that ought to DRum up some DRead from the DRoll DRones who DRool over DR, and DRag many a forum thread down the DReary path of DRivel, DRaining into puddles of DRoss.
My only question here is not about the 70D itself, but about the (possible) 7Dii.
Not much room left between the 70D and the 6D/5Diii for the 7Dii ... unless the 7Dii would be something like a cropped 5Diii (around the same price as well though)
The only way I can see a 7DII in Canon's future is if it is targeted more at pros than consumers.
This means a sensor optimized for high ISO (rather than more megapixels), really fast fame rate (10 fps?), better AF system (more than 19 AF points), etc..
Such a camera will surely be expensive, as it won't be targeted as consumers anymore.
A $2000 price tag won't surprise me one bit.
BIF is hard to do.... Insects in flight is even harder... but a bird in flight chasing an insect!!!!! WOW!!!! That has to be the hardest shot to take that I have seen in the forum. congratulations! Well done!
