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

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

I love the D70. I am simply blown away by the capabilities and image quality. I have nothing against the drebel. I had some AF lenses for Nikon. I had used Nikon SLRs before with satisfaction. I bought a D70.

The battle rages on over on the 300d forum for a multitude of reasons. Some people (daniella) would have you believe you can't get a good picture form the camera. Obviously not the case. Look at Torwong Salwala's (howhow) images from Asia. Simply stunning.

It's complete sillyness. The best piece of technology you can get for better picutres is a good alarm clock. If you go to a time and place where the good images are, your Nikon D70 will capture them.

On moire, I won't deny it happens. Although infrequently, if I were a architecture photographer, I'd buy the drebel. But, why the hell would I ever take picture of a building. I'd rather look at Phil's crayon picts than building images. But that's just my taste.

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?
