Intelligent Viewfinder with superimposed LCD display provides approximately 98% field of view
The EOS 70D camera’s Intelligent Viewfinder offers a sharp, bright, approximately 98% field of view with an approximate magnification of 0.95x, a viewing angle of 27.9° and a 22mm eyepoint. Featuring a new coating that reduces reflections and new construction that improves response in cold environments, the EOS 70D’s Intelligent Viewfinder makes it simple to adjust and confirm settings without the risk of missing a beat. The Intelligent Viewfinder uses a transparent LCD to superimpose a customizable combination of focus points and gridlines directly over the image: it displays AF mode, AF points, electronic level, grid, alerts informing when white balance is being corrected and when Spot metering is enabled, and much more. With the EOS 70D’s Intelligent Viewfinder, unlike with other cameras, the photographer has the choice of seeing shooting information or looking only at the scene in front of the camera. The ability to effectively erase all shooting data and turn it back on with the touch of a button gives the photographer the opportunity to concentrate simply on looking and composing the photograph without distraction, a great advantage in numerous shooting situations.

While not a full magnesium body chasis, the build quality and feel is outstanding. For this price the many features are superb, including the touch screen. Used with the kit 18-135 lens, very happy. With the EF 70-200 L II IS USM, incredibly fast and accurate. Focusing with the live view video is best in class with either lens. Can't wait to try with the 100mm macro lens. Any complaints you might read online regarding the still quality are unfounded when you use good glass. This new camera and dual pixel technology is going to be the forerunner of much greater things to come from Canon. Invest in good glass and let the camera do its magic. Cons: Missing dual card slot and audio mic input for avid video shooters. GPS also a miss.

I received my 70D about a week ago. I had read all the reviews and seen You-Tube video's talking about the camera. But until you can have one in your hand, you cannot experience the true wonder of this Camera. I own a 60D [a wonderful camera], but this one is head and shoulders above the 60D. Faster in FPS, much quicker Live View. HDR and Backlit Portraits. The video portion is what I was really interested in and it has worked flawlessly. Now I can film my little nephews soccer games for the whole family to enjoy. I love the 19 point AF as it gives me much greater coverage in all modes. This is my 3rd Canon DSLR and it is the best one for the APS-C users. I am going to enjoy using this for years to come.
