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

What moire? What noise? No Way!

I got mine in March, thousands of pictures.
I've seen no moire, no backfocus and virtually no noise.
Its hard to imagine what could be significantly improced to cause me to change.
The post processing challange!
I LIKED shooting jpegs and your done.
But now I can do so much more, so why not.
I got a cheap 1G card, with the buffer it works great.
The prices of VR lenses, the price of the flashes.
It has reinvigorated my love of Photography.

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?
