Rated 2 out of 5 by pes Focus issue everything else is great
take mostly sports shots. At first it worked ok but now the active shots are all soft and not sharp at all. I have the 100-400 and several other canon lenses and they work well on other cameras. Because of my investment I must stay with Canon but wish I could move on to something else. Will probably try the 80d to see if it is any better.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fryedleo32 Sorry I bought it . . glad I still have my 50D
This dual pixel focus doesn't work well. VERY soft image quality and I'm not the only one to see it. Also have a problem with the external flash . . . Don't know why but there are times when using my 430 EX flash the resulting photo appears overexposed to the point it's almost totally white. EXIF info shows exposure to be consistent with what should have produced a great photo. This doesn't happen all of the time. Between the terrible focusing (it happens with three different Canon lenses, one of the L) and this flash issue I don't have any confidence or trust in this camera. I'm going back to my 50D. BTW . . I know their engineers are great and got the firmware EXACTLY right the first time . . thus there's no need for an update since shipping.

I have had my 70D for two years and am SO happy with the purchase! The camera has been to Hawaii, London and various U.S. cities and I'm very satisfied with the results. The quick response and focusing allows you to get shots you weren't able to in the past. The video feature is a delight. I'm still learning that aspect of the camera but it's fun! This was a definite step up from the 40D, one I do not regret.
Rated 5 out of 5 by drguffey Great for Sports!
I do sports photography for the local High School. Getting great shots with a Sigma 17-50MM 2.8 lens. No need for flash & getting great low noise shots at high ISO. Focusing is quick & spot on! Love this camera!

I bought this camera because it was the best of both worlds. I could capture a great photograph as well as great video footage. 2 years ago I was a little bit green when it came to photography. After an internship at a studio and a few classes I definitely know how to take a photograph. Unfortunately this camera has given me several issues with the focus when I am photographing. When I am shooting live view videos it seems to be fine... This is not a user error. I have had every camera guru take a look at this for me and after extreme doubt have read all over the internet about this problem. Unfortunately I will need a new camera body and am working with the camera shop to exchange.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swimmiez56 Absolutely Incredible Camera.
I have been a Canon user for quite some time and I recently made this purchase to upgrade my previous camera and I must say that the 70D is incredible. For the amount of money, build quality and image quality. This camera is extremely good value!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Will N My first DSLR
Great camera for the price. Full of features. I use a 50mm f/1.4 USM lens and the pics come out fairly well but sometimes fuzzy. Not sure I like the cropped sensor experience though, especially when using EF lenses.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Barry of Orange 70d is a great camera for the Average / Pro
This is a quality camera for the advanced user. While it has many automatic modes to choose from, that work under a variety of lighting conditions, I prefer to use one of the manual modes for the ultimate photo. With lighting not always ideal I prefer setting a fixed Shutter, Aperture, with auto to manual ISO. I have two lenses which take care of every situation for me. Canon 24x70mm 2.8 & 70x200mm 2.8 lenses. My 70d simply takes amazing professional quality photos but if I wanted better I would try the 80d, 7d Mk II, or wait for the next 5d Mark IV. NOTE: when they come out with a model like the 7d Mark II features with a 28 or higher Megapixel, then you will see higher quality photos. I have been shooting with the 7d for 2 years now and it has been a great camera. I mainly shoot family, action, safari park in escondido, ca, and sports. Also enjoy night shots on the tripod. Yes... a great choice
