              Main difference between cameras is the dual pixel cmos on the 700D which makes autofocus on liveview and video autofocus much much faster. You need STM lenses to really take advantage though. If prices are close 700D if 650D is considerable cheaper than 650D. If you can afford it 70D or the upcoming 7DM2

              but if you have an extra bucks, choose 70D

              The 700 is only a tweekt up version of the 650. I own the 650 with the 18-135mm lens. It works sweet. Make your own choose bro.
