Camera Labs posted their exhaustive Canon EOS 80D review. And it is another very positive review. Canon appears to have hit the spot with the EOS 80D, a perfect all-rounder that’s impossible not to like.
From the conclusion:
The EOS 80D makes a number of key improvements over its predecessor, but its core appeal remains unchanged: the speed and confidence of a traditional mid-range DSLR coupled with one of the best movie and live view autofocus systems on the market. This gives you the choice of uncompromised shooting whether you’re using the optical viewfinder or the fully-articulated touch-screen. The earlier EOS 70D really did give you the best of both Worlds and now the EOS 80D enhances it further.[…]
Beyond the sensor, the other major upgrade concerns the AF system which enjoys a decent jump from the 19-point system of the EOS 70D to a new 45-point system here. All points remain cross-type, but now 27 of them will work at f8, allowing you to autofocus with slower lenses or those combined with teleconverters. The new AF system also works in much lower light levels than before, down to -3EV compared to -0.5EV on the 70D.
