IMHO, Canon had to respond to the Nikon D7100's AF system. That was a clear shot that Nikon wasn't afraid to push more pro features down into APS-C land.
I'm actually impressed w/ the 70D's features....they finally stepped up their game to one-up Nikon instead of playing follow the leader. *19* cross-type AF sensors is very impressive as is the dual-pixel focusing improvement. Their main mis-step is the 98% OVF because everyone has gone to 100% OVF.
But this also means their next EOS-M might not suck :-)
And I have no idea how Pentax is going to respond....super duper AF has never been their strength :-(

Competition is good though :-)

Does it also hurt that Pentax entry level K-500 beat Canon 70D in some ways.

K500 has
Larger sensor
Larger pentaxprism OVF with 100% coverage
Most likely better IQ at high ISO.
Image stabilization on all lenses
+ weatherproofing

Is everyone assuming this sensor is behind the Sony's in DR again or may Canon have cut that lead with this sensor?

Had a chance to play with the 70D at Costco today.
Man that AF system is almost mind-read quick!
But the ergonomics, ugh! Why no rear wheel?
