Canon EOS-80D vs EOS-70D Camera Comparison

Canon EOS-80D vs EOS-70D APS-C camera comparison

Many of you know me as the Wildlife Ho-tographer using Canon equipment for 25 years. Over the past four years, I have picked the EOS-7D / 7D Mark II as the best value APS-C DSLR for sports and wildlife photography. With the recent announcement of the Canon EOS-80D, many people want to know whether they should upgrade from their current Rebel or EOS-XXD cameras, while others want to know if they should buy the EOS-7D Mark II or the new camera. 

My advice is the following. If you are into sports and wildlife photography, buy the EOS-7D Mark II. Keep your current EOS-70D unless you really need a slightly better video and AF system (including AF @ f/8) and 4 more MP for cropping. If you are on a budget and want a very good, APS-C camera for action photography, buy a refurbished and well cared for EOS-7D from Canon or from a trusted source.

If you currently own a Canon Rebel or a EOS-60D and older camera but want a very good DSLR camera for everyday use and have the funds or have sold your EOS-70D, look no further than the EOS-80D. You can see my equipment bag and works on
