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 #34 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.

I would like to hear how usm lenses track in video compared to the stm lenses. all the sample videos thus far have all been tested with stm lenses.

I just posted a video comparing DPAF video tracking with STM and USM lenses: http://youtu.be/djOPPQycZ8g

That's a nice test of the focus speed of Dual Pixel

Has anyone who ordered from the US Amazon store had theirs shipped yet?

I pre-ordered July 2nd, and Amazon was quoting an 8/26 release, and now they are showing out of stock on the body, the 18-55 and 18-135.

Wondering if they didn't get any stock allocation from Canon?

I was in the same boat as you.  this afternoon I canceled my order with amazon and ordered from abt.com, they are a BIG local appliance and electronics store north of chicago and are awsome.  I know for a fact that they still have three body onlys in stock as of right now.

I pre-ordered mine on July 4th so I called Amazon today to check status.  She told me the first batch shipped out today and they are now sold out.  They are awaiting more inventory from Canon.  She said her internal system was giving her an estimated date of August 29th - 30th for my camera to be delivered.

The waiting is the hardest part.
