Do you still prefer a D70 over a hacked 300D?

I don't waste time in thinking about ist

Ed, I can not agree with you.

What's your real objective? Good pictures you are doubtless satisfied with? To have a better ot cheaper camera than others have? Fight battles that only your decisions are the right ones.

It doesn't touch me at all that there are better cameras around and even if the 300D is better in some features I don't care. I really like my D70 and I'm happy with it. For me I don't like the 300D but if others think vice versa it doesn't bother me.

So - for me - your questions are absolutely unnecessary.

Have fun with your equipment, either D70 or 300D, and take good pictures which you can enjoy.

I don't want to get into another heated debate but I was over at
300D forum and I read many "anti D70" comments that attacks many
aspects of the camera especially the "inferior" image quality claim
due to moire and noise. What really bothered me was that no one
was able to defend against those claims. Peacekeeper, Todd, and
Msport had tried but I think they were overpowered by a few
relentless Canonians.

I personally have not experienced such problems. In fact, I am
perfectly happy with D70 and I have printed out a few unbelivable

But now, I wonder if I get the best performance / $ ratio
especially now the new firmware hack is available that gives the
camera new features such as ISO 3200 and MLU.

So my question is now if you can return your D70 for a 300D + about
$400 more in your wallet, would you do it?
