A milestone moment for the Canon 70D and its magic pixels. It has received the finalized dpreview review, a 20-page technobabble diatribe. The 70D magic pixels were so magical it took three dpreview-reviewers to keep them in check. If you are in a hurry or running out of battery or patience, you can always jump to the conclusions before jumping to conclusions. Did it earn an Olympic metal or was it referred to the alchemists?... The review is discussed in the dpreview comments.
Dpreview is not the whole review world, so be sure to also check over a dozen completed Canon 70D reviews by other reviewers including Dxomark, Photo Review, CNet, Imaging Resource, etc.
As of the time of writing, the Canon 70D goes for its usual price of $1200 at Amazon et al, however, if you are not afraid of mail-in rebates, you can get a much better deal at Adorama (expires 11/1/13 or earlier if sold out): $1038 after a $400 mail-in rebate (in the form of a prepaid AMEX gift card) and you also score the Pixma Pro-100 printer and a 50pk of photo paper. You will also receive 4% promotional rewards. This is a bit involved, so take a deep breath...
... start at the Adorama Canon 70D page. Take a deep breath. Locate the link below "Buy together and save" on the right side of the picture. Click on that. On the window that pops under, scroll until you find the Pixma Pro 100 and 50pk photo paper bundle. Add the camera and printer bundle to the shopping cart. When you reach the Checkout page, your total should be around $1438. After you receive your order and make sure all is well, you can then submit the mail-in rebate. A few weeks later, you will receive a $400 prepaid American Express gift card by mail. Thus, $1038 after the $400 mail-in rebate (MIR).
TIP: only the Pixma Pro-100 has a $400 MIR bundle. The other two printers (Pro-1 and Pro-10) have $300 MIRs. Be sure to fill the correct form in the PDF rebate since they are all in one PDF file! You can find the PDF file on the right side of the Adorama 70D page, right above the green "add to cart" button.
