then,  outside of build quality and a few faster shots per second,  what advantage does the 7d mki have over the 70d?

None...until its specs are known.  But probably better standard phase AF, better sealing to go with the better build, perhaps better metering, definitely more C# modes, more MP, much better high ISO, time will tell...

Ooh! Ooh! I get to correct Neuro!!

That said mki, not mkii ;-) We know the specs on the mki.

I expect your 1dx caused you to forget about your poor 2nd body... ;-)

Well, technically there's no such thing as a MkI anything...   ;)

The 7D is pretty much a lame duck at this point.  Unless you need that feature set between now and September...
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

well the 70d's -.5ev is the same as the 7d's. while i do remember having few stuggles with it in low light, it was usually when the resulting picture would be supremely noisy

thelebaron, that's pretty much how I felt-a little struggling in low light but nothing to take notice of, etc.  Until I tried low light AF on the 6D.  I'm curious if you've tried the 6D & if so, how you found it (low light performance) in comparison to the 7D? I know its not totally apples to apples (FF to Crop, differing overall af systems, etc.,etc) but still, I do wonder about Canon staying with the -.5ev range on this camera.  Maybe picking up the AF of the 7D they had to stay with the same ev rating?
still a 5D2 fan

I read that twice... and I was thinking... what 20 is still more than 18... uhhh... but then it all clicked in.

I actually have the 6D now and I had the 7D for about a year prior. I find that the center focus point on the 6D can pick up almost anything in a dimly lit room, whereas the 7D will focus hunt quite a bit unless there is at least moderate contrast. On the other hand, I find that the 7D's outer focus points are noticeably faster than those of the 6D's, but that's to be expected considering the 7D's are all cross-type. For a DSLR of this caliber, I think -.5EV will be more than adequate for most scenarios, although an improvement over its predecessor(s) would have been nice.

I agree with bleephotography, but my experience is a 5d3(which replaced my 7d). Its great being able to focus alot faster and more accurately, but when Ive forced a photo in those types of situations, things could be noisy or dark or both. It hasn't really made a large impact to me as an enthusiast, but I could see it being more of a big deal for wedding or event photography.
