1 comment to Canon 70D vs Sony Alpha A58

  • the 70D competition is the
    Nikon D7100
    Sony Alpha 77
    Pentax K5 IIs
    Olympus EM5 om-D
    Panasonic GH3
    Fuji Xe 1

    It has all the bells and whistles it needs to be the best. But is turns down on the quality of the new sensor. If it is as good as the Nikon D7100, canon may finally have a great product in their APSC line up again
