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

I prefer canon lenses.......

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?

I could give a rat's @ss about the camera, but what can i put on the D70 that will give me 400mm and excellent image quality and please don't say the sigma 50-500, tried it didn't like it. I'm thinking of a lens that you can handhold that cost less than the $1500 and please post some examples. In the lower mm range the differences in image quality is probably a toss up and depends on what you prefer and i'm not talking about the kits lenses. No need for 100% crops with me.
