The 70D's been out for a little while and I'm taking my avoidance of spontaneous purchasing to a new level. My lenses are the 35 2.0 IS, 100 2.0 and 200 2.8 II. I've got it almost all covered with those three with the added benefit of my real or perceived benefits of prime lenses.
My curfuffle is in upgrading the body from a T1i. I think I'm there and have reviewed all combinations of bodies, lenses, high-end compacts for all non-sports photography (I do lots of indoor volleyball in particular - world-class 11th grade daughter and all/delusional sports dad alert).
For sports and all other types of photography I REALLY appreciate image quality and am getting very good results with my T1i/LR4. My current focal lengths, also, work.
We did spend the weekend in Boston and the thought of a high-end compact did cross my mind, but then I came to my senses and thought that maybe just one GREAT do-it-all body is the best answer (with my minimalist approach in mind).
With all of the above is my answer probably the 70D? I care nothing of video, continuous shooting, articulating screen, wifi or GPS and might like to stick with the 1.6x effect. Would the SL1 be a mistake or maybe the right answer or is the closest to perfect really the 70D?
