It's lighter and if it can go longer without needing to have the dealer service it just to get it to run properly, it may be worth looking at.
I've had my for 3 years now and it's never been in the shop for a repair. in fact none of my stihl equipment has ever been in the shop for a repair.
I do roughly 40-50 accounts a week. the dealer recommended the fs 70 for the mostly residential work I do.
