"dude, get a 5D1/6D/5D3, you're not interested in shooting birds, you twonk!“

... or macro, I find my 60d works better then the 6d since it's got more working distance (100L) and you don't want thin dof anyway

... or non-raw video since the 70d has dual_pixel video af (but no Magic Lantern (yet), doh)

... or working at add odd angles or on tripod, the swivel screen of 60d/70d is invaluable near ground level

... or non-hss flash photography, 60d/70d/7d all have 1/250s x-sync, 6d only 1/180, and this is noticeable

Touché! I'll admit, after shooting the 60D for a year or two and "Going Full Frame" very soon after the 6D dropped, there's a very good chance I'd have gone for it over the 5D3 had it came with the flippy-floppy screen... and I can even be quoted as having said "the only reason I'd trade my 60D for the 7D would be to sell the 7D to fund another 60D with cash left over" ;)
Regarding all of the above, though... WiFi monitoring on the 6D for tough angles and "selfies"? Nice...
I've also recently purchased and am yet to try out wee adapters which allow me to plug my Android Phone into my 5D3, there's apparently an App which does monitoring, shutter release etc! I digressss... perpetually...
I don't know if I'll ever use video autofocus, despite it seemingly being THE selling point of the 70D, though touchscreen focusing is a fun/useful feature for stills on the EOS M!

This isn't what this thread's about at all, is it? Heh... I still personally don't really see the appeal of a 7D I, II ooor III ;)
5D3 // 70D // EOS M // Sigma 24/1.8 & 50/1.4 // Canon EF 400/5.6L & 100/2 // Tamron 17-35/2.8-4 // Samsung NX1000 & 16/2.4 & 30/2 & EF Adpt // SONY HDR FX1000 // Canon XM2 & HV20 // Zoom H1 // Paints, Pens & Pencils!... USA Strat, Mexican Tele, Warwick Thumb 5 ;)

Having said that, I've just bought myself a Grey 70D (for the record, £626 and some pennies from Panamoz!! Best I've found since ProCameraShop crawled up its ass and died)

Hi Khufu, how did you get on with Panamoz in general and import duties specifically?
I got the feeling that Panamoz was ProCameraShop reincarnate.
Didn't really like their import duties get out of jail card in T&Cs so put me off.
£626 is a ridiculously good price for uk though.

To underline my previous post Nikon will be showing the Nikon D4s ahead of a fully official launch Im sure Canon will not want Nikon to steal the thunder at this the first The Photography Show at the NEC inBirmingham, England this coming weekend March 1st - 4th.

Lee Filters will also have some cool new products.

I don't know how many people out there are waiting for this Camera. It's a very very long wait now. It is still really surprising still not to have a CR3 news on this.
I've really wanted a 7D2 to be released by canon ... Tired of waiting I got a 5d3 in October 2012. Now I'm not sure what the 7d2 will offer which will make me get one after having been spoilt by the 5d3.
I also got the 5D MKIII in October 2012.
