But what's more important is that you should never get a card that's larger than you can afford to lose, because reliability varies greatly from brand to brand. Flash memory locations fail with anybody's cards. What counts is how many spare memory locations are on the card. SanDisk and Lexar put as many as anybody else does, and more than most.
So, SanDisk and Lexar cards are among the fastest and among the most reliable.
TCav ... speaking of which, the 7100 got the dual SD slot, so you can make a backup on the go ... something that 70d missed.

for someone who still in doubt, the best video that shows 70d against 7100: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOM4r1gxsbs

by the way, i got the 70d with 18-55, 55-250 kit, plus 50-1.8.

Great video for those interested.

Those are two nice camera systems. That guy sure puts a lot of effort into comparing them.

After watching the video I don't think there's a clear winner.

I'd make my decision based on the lenses I already own.
Canon S95
