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

Let them go on and on over there. Best defense is a good offense. If they repeat it often enough maybe they'll start believing it. Everyone knows the 300d is a stiff and the D70 can go head to head with the 10D any day.

I have been a Canon user since the FD days and I have lots of EOS stuff and my attitude was that Canon walked on water. Had a couple of digital p/s's and when it was time to go DSLR I bought a DRebel, and gave it back, bought a 10D and gave it back too (lots of reasons, not important here). Waited and pondered and when the D70 came out I went to a store just to look-see. Well, 2 dozen frames and an hour later I took one home with a 24-85G Nikor. That was a month ago, and I'm likin' every frame..

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?
