Hello all! I currently own a Nikon D3100 and I'm in need of an upgrade. Now I'm posting here in the Canon forum 'cause I'm considering upgrading to a Canon 70D. First, let me tell you why: Very good APS-C sensor (not the best I know, but still very good) More megapixels (not a nut about this, but having more than 14MP is nice ) Slightly better dynamic range (not hugely so, but it's an improvement nonetheless) Excellent AF system (19 cross-type AF points, quick and accurate) Better looking noise (yes, you read that right XD) Lighter than FF bodies (D800s and 5Dxs have produced back and shoulder pain, I don't need that) Now, what do you guys think about this? The big factor for me is the AF system. I don't mind the ~2 stops less of Dynamic Range vs say a D7100, or the loss of ~4 megapixels or that the 70D has a AA filter. I'm not a pro, but I know that no sensor can fix an out of focus, badly lit photo, period. I need reliable AF during studio sessions, lit by the modeling lights of studio flashes (Bowens, Alien Bees and the like). I'm not a full time photog, but I do shoot for some local magazines from time to time. A few times I've borrowed a friend's D800, and I've also shot with a 5DII, 6D, L glass and all. They are nice rigs of course, but I cannot afford them. It's kinda hard for me to put that amount of money all at once. The 70D body is within my reach if I save up for a few months and do extra jobs on the side. The 6D is really nice, but I'm not sold on the 1 cross-type AF center point. If any of you can convince me otherwise please do. When I'm on a shoot I need to rely on my tools, mostly AF, because nothing sucks more than nailing a shot, but when you look at it on the computer screen it is slightly out of focus. I need a reliable and accurate AF system, which is why the 70D caught my eye. So far, the DR of my D3100 has been more than enough, so I think I wouldn't need much more. I think glass and sensor resolution matter more in the long run. I plan on acquiring Sigma Art primes and probably a Tamron 90 macro for portraits eventually (Canon L glass is overpriced IMO). I don't need full frame, it'd be nice, but it's more of a luxury than a necessity. What do you guys think? Does my plan make sense? Please help me out! P.D. I've also considered other systems, like the Olympus OMD-EM1, Sony A7 and Fuji XT-1, but I'm not sure about their AF system's reliability and the EVF's those cameras have. Unfortunately these cameras are not available in my country and I cannot test drive them in the flesh to either confirm or deny my assumptions. On the other hand, I have used Canon 60Ds, T4is, T5is, 7Ds, etc., so I do have first hand experience with them.
