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

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
pictures.

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?

ahhh more D70 bashing LOL... well I compared the 300d prior to getting my D70... it was cheap and toy like. Although the camera can take some good pics the features are very limited in comparison and the D70 performance wins hands down. When Canonians start I just tell them that I honestly don't think the 300d could have been made any lighter, with more plastic, to look any cheaper... and still sell... they really do have that "my first camera" look a teenager might envy. The D70 can be adjusted using settings and custom tone curves to produce shots just like a 300d but it is also so much more versitile and looks and feels like a real professional camera IMO...
