I currently own a 5D Mark II and love it but looking to expand to something with more video features like 60p. I love the image quality of the 5D and have considered getting selling my mark 2 and getting a Mark 3 but it's still pretty over my budget. Then someone had suggested I get the 70D, because it has the best video features of any of the canon DSLR's and also can act as a backup body for my 5D mark II which I can then keep.
Will the 70d give me just as good video image quality as my current 5D Mark II? Or should I wait and keep saving up to upgrade to a 5D Mark III?
why not get the 6D + the 70D, the 5D3 is soon to be replaced and you do not want to spend that kind of money on an old camera like that.
I think the 5D4 is really on the horizon , maybe announced at the CES or CP+ ?
And I am sure the mk4 gets the same PDAF on the sensor from the 70D.
I think the amazing LV/video AF alone makes the 70D worth it........
so get the 6D and the excellent 70D for now and as the 5D4 comes , sell both and get the 5DMK4.
but with that said , the 5D3 is a great versatile camera, so if you do not mind the size or the still very high price of it , you may be happier with it than with the 6D.
personally, I never get the 5D3 since I think I lost the best timing to buy it.
