Well I hope Brian's knowledge of the camera is better than his knowledge of horses !

That nag galloping towards the camera at '40 to 45 mph ' , who does he think it is,  Red Rum ? If a horse like that was really going flat out it would be about 500 metres per minute max - 18 mph.

Well written and comprehensive review. 

Conclusion: confirmation of what was already known ... IQ improvement vs. 70D minimal and even vs. 7D quite disappointing. Too bad. Really great DSLR otherwise, everything there, except built-in WiFi.

Its good to see a competent review.  I try to read reviews from multiple competent reviewers, since some tent to pickup on points that others miss, or even disagree.
 
I did not see anything that surprised me in his review, its mostly in line with other reviews.

You might try reading the review before embarrassing yourself with a gratuitous negative comment.

"Perhaps even more beneficial for understanding what can be done with this frame rate is to look at a visual example. Drag your mouse over the labels under the following image for a visual look at the 10 fps rate. Drag your mouse completely across all of the labels in 1.3 seconds to get an idea of the speed of the approaching horse – approximately 40-45 mph (64-72 kph). I know, the labels are a bit small for that mouse move, but this approach happened very fast."

She would have to be riding a top form Derby winner - on the flat - on good going - with a race saddle - riding weight less than 7 stone. As I said, this target would have been travelling towards the camera at 18 mph max.
