Putting aside the new Dual Pixel AF system for a moment, the EOS 70D represents a fair upgrade over its predecessor. It offers a more capable 19-point AF system, faster continuous shooting, built-in Wifi, broader viewfinder coverage, a touch-screen, the choice of movie compression, deeper bracketing and AF micro-adjustment. Considering the minor refresh that became the EOS T5i / 700D, the EOS 70D represents a significant move forward by Canon. Indeed it brings the 70D close to what’s offered by the EOS 7D, surpassing it in some respects, and having us speculate what the company has up its sleeve for a possible successor in the semi-pro category.
