Two of the hottest APS-C DSLRs on the market are arguably the Canon 70D and the Nikon D7100, and if you're looking to upgrade your camera, you may be wondering which one of these cameras should you choose. If you've already accumulated a big collection of lenses from either brand, the decision becomes much easier, as it can be quite an expensive endeavour to switch. However, if you're ready to jump to the "dark side" (from whichever side of the fence you currently site) or you're upgrading from a compact camera, we're here to help with our in-depth editorial comparison review of the Canon 70D vs. Nikon D7100.

If you're in the market for an enthusiast level APS-C DSLR, the Canon 70D and the Nikon D7100 are two of the top choices. While these two cameras sit in relatively the same spot in their respective product lineup at similar price points, there are some notable differences that cater to different users. And while the exterior ergonimics, as well as size and weight are relatively similar, it's the under-the-hood features that set these two apart.
