If it is definitely a 70 then I would have to say it looks closer to a 70d certified image I have (just the digital image - not the stamp) than any other. But there is something slightly worn about it that makes it very hard - not to mention that both are just digital images. Good luck.

Congrats, BlackJack!

Nice find. Thanks for making a 'game' out of this! I voted 'other' - I am off now to lick my wounds.
