I just got mine this afternoon (August 22nd) at Aden Camera in Downtown Toronto (Yonge and Dundas) for $1150 (body only). They had a lot of 70Ds with the 18-55mm kit, a few 18-135mm kits, and some bodies. Waiting for the battery to fully charge to play with it :-)

Congrats xvnm on your new toys ;D

post some pics...

Hi all-

Melbourne, Australia: 70D everywhere in stores now.  Will be interested to find out how the dual pixel AF works at macro distances and in low light.  Might have to have a play with one once the initial havoc dies down, for the sake of curiosity...  Still waiting for that 7D ii however.

No 1080p 60?
« Reply #37 on: August 24, 2013, 10:11:06 AM »
So the G16 has 1080P 60 FPS but the 70D only has 720p 60??  Are you kidding me?  I don't get Canon marketing at all.  No slow mo on the $6k c100, 720p 60FPS on the $15k c300 and 720p/60FPS on the $1.2k 70D but 1080p/60FPS on the $600 G16?  Wow.

Just to let you folks know 70D live view PDAF is not compatible with 3rd party lenses. Camera falls back on contrast based AF when lens is not supported.

They're also charging a $100+ premium for that fact. Just wait a week and get it from Amazon/etc.
