you can, but you'll have to get quite close to the stage if you want any close-ups. For me, the loss of reach when shooting concerts was noticeable when I switched from the 60D to the 5D.

Why all the hate on the M? Anyone who has used mirrorless cameras knows the AF is the weak point, and otherwise the M is an amazing little camera. It got some bad reviews from people who didn't take the time to get to know the camera, and those negatives have been repeated over and over by a bunch of trolls. I'd like to see how many poopooers have actually used one.
I have both, may sell the 24-105L. I suspect that a 'walkaround' shot from the 24-70 II at 70mm cropped would equal or beat the IQ of the 24-105 at 105mm (which is where the lens is weakest).
Actually, the utility I can see for the 24-105 is for portraits in a studio-type setting. While a 70mm image can be cropped, the perspective is not going to be the same as a shot at 105mm. The shot at 105mm will be a much more appropriate perspective for a tight portrait. In a studio setting, there's plenty of light and the background is controlled - so f/4 is fine.
Interesting, Ive always heard it sucked at 24.
Oh well basically the same sensor again.Yeah but we knew that... They don't want to undermine the 7d2.
I fully expect the 70D will be a refreshed 7D: "new" sensor with on-chip AF, built on the same process. Better sealing than 60D, somewhere in the 6-8fps range, and decent (maybe 7D) AF. Given that 7Ds now go for 1300ish new, I'd think that 7d specs would put the 70d right where they want it in the lineup. That sets them up well for a 7d2 to be a better camera, that they can charge accordingly for.
