Adobe recently released Camera Raw 9.5 with support for the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II, 80D, T6, Nikon D5 & D500. Unfortunately, if you're using OS X 10.7 or 10.8, you'll want to hold off on installing the update.

Resolution chart results have been added to the Canon EOS 80D page.
 
With a higher pixel count on its sensor, the 80D is expected to outresolve the 70D, and it does. Here is the comparison: 70D vs. 80D. Sharpness remains similar.
 
While the EOS Rebel T6i and T6s share the same megapixel count, these two bodies do not have Dual Pixel AF, so there is likely a difference in their sensors. Still, the results appear the same to me: 80D vs. Rebel T6i.
 
Many more comparisons are available – build your own!
 
B&H has the Canon EOS 80D available for preorder with shipments expected to commence on Fri, Mar 25th.

If you are a Netflix subscriber, you can't miss seeing Finding Vivian Maier.
 
The 2013 documentary attempts to shed light on the unknown-in-her-lifetime, but completely brilliant street photographer Vivian Maier. From FindingVivianMaier.com:
Finding Vivian Maier is the critically acclaimed documentary about a mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and, discovered decades later, is now among the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.
 
Maier’s massive body of work would come to light when in 2007 her work was discovered at a local thrift auction house on Chicago’s Northwest Side. From there, it would eventually impact the world over and change the life of the man who championed her work and brought it to the public eye, John Maloof.
 
Currently, Vivian Maier’s body of work is being archived and cataloged for the enjoyment of others and for future generations. John Maloof is at the core of this project after reconstructing most of the archive, having been previously dispersed to the various buyers attending that auction. Now, with roughly 90% of her archive reconstructed, Vivian’s work is part of a renaissance in interest in the art of Street Photography.
Watch Finding Vivian Maier on Netflix.
