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

Firmware update

What he meant was the hacked firmware of 300D not for D70.

The D70 may not appreal to a lot on their Jpeg compared to the Canon. But I can tell you, the Canon is not selling even though where I live, they are giving a away a free 75-300 lens free. What Canon will be doing is to introduce a newer model that will pip D70 in its features. Then the whole race be reversed. As for D70 vs 300D, there is no vs. It is a dead comparison. When it comes to electronics, and DSLR is first an electrionic appliance, it is features and latest. The way to compare Canon and Nikon these days is whether the great models keep on coming. I think Nikon has finally got its act totally together. I just hope Nikon can get its act together to fight the Pro DSLR market. The 1D Mk2 is a great canon success. Nikon if they come up with a souped up Pro DSLR within the next few months, then Nikon will have pretty much have won the war for now.

According to Canon, 70% of DSLRs are theirs.

Nikon will keep coming up with more great stuff until they are are 50%.

So D70 users, you are on to the track of great stuff early. Enjoy the rride.

-ED- stick on to your Nikon track. The worse choice is jumping track. You will lose both ends.

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?
