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

Really...

I can show you pictures that prove the 80 - 400 is in fact in the same class and may even be better! The price is comparable as well so it looks to me like they're competing lenses.

Nikon has nothing like it in that price range, and I want it for
wildlife and bird photography.

Don't even mention the 80-400 VR, it's not in the same class.

I may even buy a cheap 300D body just for this purpose. I'll keep
the D70 for WA, macro and flash photography. IF I can get the BF
fixed - been back to Nikon 3 times now, I'm starting to find out
where I can get a 2mm Allen key.
