I have found the phase detection AF in that camera to be fast and effective on that camera. How come the new hybrid AF's are not as good ....

The 300D - like most DSLRs - uses separate AF detectors - not on-chip devices - the basic answer to why most mirrorless, etc. are slower/less effective.

You didn't explain why mirrorless never used off-chip phase detection. And now Canon's 450D has the twin-chip design of hybrid phase detection which doesn't work as well as advertised. My guess is that the hybrid design was supposed to enhance the 450D's low-light or video AF??

So some are recommending getting the older gen. 350D instead.
