Conclusion: Have had this camera for 6 months now, hands down best camera in canon lineup based on price. Many powerful options and excellent layout. Produces excellent image quality and is truely a joy to use. Video mode is an added bonus!!
Excerpt: The 70D has many nice features & it takes very good pictures outdoors but it suffers from really bad noise in low light. Still pictures taken during video are often blurry & underexposed & are cropped to video proportions rather than the 3: 2 format of regular stills. The flash will not fire for stills taken during video. The camera simply extracts one frame of the movie & does not downsample it to the 1080P format. There is a 1 sec break in the video for stills.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: This camera is fantastic.. Order it on 9/15 arrived on 9/16 great service by B&H and was taking photos last evening at my sons soccer.. I was struggling to take quality shots w/ a TI5 and a EF 70-200MM F2.8 lens and this camera made a huge difference in photo quality.. I am not a professional by any means but this camera is a keeper.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Conclusion: Purchased my 70D when it first came out. I was excited from the start and I'm still excited with it's performance. I've shot nature pics with my long lens without issue, even hand held. Early in ownership I photographed a wedding with fantastic results. My old EF 28-80 was the only thing that gave me trouble at the wedding. I have also used this camera numerous times for work related photo & video documentation with great results.

Summary: Amazing camera. I love it. Easy to use and great quality pictures. Even pictures in motion turn out as if you were standing still. For anyone who has sports pictures or any activity pictures to take you will not be upset with this purchase.
