New to DSLRs. Using Canon 70D for Video

I'm thinking of getting the Canon 70D as my first DSLR for shooting video. It seems like a good choice with the auto-focus: Using the Canon 70D for Video - Review - Camera Cap

Anyone have any experience?

You have to start somewhere so I guess the 70d would be ok, might look into the 80d as that is the latest model.

Re: New to DSLRs. Using Canon 70D for Video

Current US street prices are $999 for the 70D with 18-55 IS STM lens versus $1249 for the 80D with the same lens.

Is anyone waiting for the 77D at $1049 or the T7i at $899 and spend the extra money on lenses?
