I can't compare your camera but I can compare the 6D, 7D2 and 5DIV. In general I would say that at ISO 2500 and above the 'pixel reach' of the 7D2 starts to be negated by the better pixel quality of the FF models. I would expect the 70D to be slightly more so. Having said that the difference is there but not 'night and day' on casual viewing of an image but it becomes more pronounced if you crop or recover shadows.
To be honest, even in half-decent light, and image where you would use a FF sensor and say 'nah! it is starting to fall apart', the APS-C image is not gong to be a miraculous award-winner because it will have more pixels but be noisier. It all depends on what compromises you are willing to accept.
That's what I'm trying to figure out: will the "better" pixels of the 6D2 make up for ~40% higher linear pixel density of the 70D for low-light/noise performance.

I upgraded to the 1Dx2 and 5DIV not for mage quality because I think the 7D2 for all its faults is still a very good performer. I upgraded for focus accuracy.
1DX2 would break my budget, unfortunately.

We have a rental business that specialises in fashion photographers on the one hand and travel photographers on the other.
The Nikon D500 is knocking spots off of the 7D MKII in the travel market whereas in fashion we struggle with anything Nikon (too early to say with the D850) and the 5D MKIV is the best rented Canon.

Canon need to upgrade the 7D MKII when it launched it was underwhelming and its even more underwhelming since the arrival of the D500.

Curious to hear your take on the D500 doing better than the 7D2 -- what's the principal driver?

4K?
Sensor?
That inexpensive 200-500 Nikkor?

Just curious.  We'll never see hard data on 7D2 vs. D500 sales, so I'll take an anecdotal read if I can get one.

I had been very happy with my 7DII for a couple of years but sold it after I bought the 5DSR for 3 reasons: the IQ of the 5DSR, which lacks the AA filter, is significantly better; the AF is much better; and the FF gives a better field of view. The Nikon d500 , according to reports, has the first two of those advantages, as well as others.

I am wondering if the 90D may not happen, but a mirrorless version might replace it.  Of course, it is not likely, but Canon may be piling resources into mirrorless.

New Rebel versions are on the way for early next year, so that frees up a development team to work on the next new model.  What will it be?  Mirrorless or DSLR?
