Sounds to me like Canon is in Panic Mode. Lots of new cameras No-One is asking for. First the lack-luster M without an EVF, and now an APS-C Super Zoom (without an EVF). Keep throwing things at the wall, something will stick ... Yeah Right!!

Nikon only has second class citizens when it comes to their customer service
Better specs don't equal respect, they are trying to compete.

Why would I pay the same price as a Nikon D7100, for a camera with fewer features Will the 70D have 51 point autofocus Will the 70D shutter be tested 150,000 cycles Will the 70D have a 2,016 pixel RGB 3D Matrix Metering System Will the 70D have dual SDXC slots
Shutter lifecycle is irrelevant ...
Dual memory card slots are irrelevant ...
As for the rest of your specs...well, they're meaningless. What matters is the actual real-world autofocus and metering performance, ...
