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

But ...

even Nikon's own TC-14E doesn't work with the 80-400 because it doesn't have AF-S and it is the slowest focusing lens in the Nikon line-up.

And the VR doesn't work on a tripod.

I don't regard them as competitive.

A revised 80-400 VR with new VR (like the 200-400) and AF-S, for the same price as the Canon, now that I would look at.

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.
