How can we know what YOU want from your DSLR?.
You see all of them will do a pretty good job and it's hard to specify without more information. All I can say is go Canon or Nikon if you think that one day photography ought to be a major part of your career..

I basically am new to photography, but with a vacation on the horizon I decided to finally upgrade to a slr camera. My main concern is image quality. Essentially I can get all of the aformentioned cameras for 499 canadian but I am having a hard time picking one over the other. Is the Nikon d40 a solid choice even though it's 6 megapixels?..
It's a very good choice BECAUSE it has only 6 M.VictorBucuresti, Romaniahttp://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/victor_petcu/http://picasaweb.google.com/teodor.nitica/..
Here is a side by side of your choices. Read the reviews and the owner opinions. I would suggest you look at the Nikon D60 over the D40 and prferably the D80 if your budget allows. The Sony is probably the best buy and with what you save, you can buy an additional lens or two..
After all your research, go try them out. Hold them in your hands. Try out the menus. You want to feel comfortable with your camera. All will give you great pictures. There are no "wrong" choices from these, just what is right for you...

Yes. The D40 is a solid choice. So are the others. Choose your lens(es). Choose what type of shot you want to shoot..
Are you sure you won't be happier with a bridge cam?.
