Canon EOS 70D Review by Andy Westlake & Co at DPReview: More or less keeping up with its peers, but the mirrorless camp is quicly closing the gap.

Canon has been playing the 'small steps' game with its EOS xxD line for quite some years, but as time passes by, so does the competition's catch-up game.  The latest offering in the xxD line brings a slew of major and minor improvements, but is this enough to thrill the ever-more demanding consumer base? 

"In terms of image quality the 70D is essentially on a par with its rivals. The Nikon D7100 captures a fraction more resolution but the 70D comes closer to

offering comparable low-light performance. This isn't enough to stop the Olympus OM-D E-M1 closing much of the gap on the Canon, despite its smaller sensor - leaving anyone without an existing investment in lenses with a tough decision to make"
