d40, pentax k100d super or e-410
Dont forget you are buying into the Lens system.

Also what do you want out of a camera.

Pentax's shake reduction is going to be useless to you if you do alot of daytime photo's or use a tripod.

If you have a large collection of old Nikon primes that you want to use, forget about auto-focus with the d40.

Etc..

Read their respective reviews, over and over again..

Go to their respective forums, and directly ask 'what you dont like about this camera'.

Then make a decision...

Even after reading many reviews I'm still confused. some say buy 10mp other 6mp is enough, others talk about pictures have to be processed by fotoshops to turn out great pictures. moving from super zoom and after using e-400 (was good except for the focus issue in less lighten places), then used a n40x which I liked but in same league(i think) as the e-400. the owner after compare says the same...

6mp is enough, so is 2mp, depending on what type of photography you do and what you do with the final pictures.

Post processing helps get rid of photographer input mistakes, resulting in less throw aways, not to mention artistic flare..

First make a list of whats important for you in a camera, or point out the things in the three cameras you are trying to make a selection out of that you like..

Then start looking into the lenses, pick a lens, or a set of lenses that you would like to use, can you even get those lenses, are they going to be cheap?.

I have a pentax K100D (not super), ive had it for 4 days, so far I like it, i'm almost certain that had I gotten a Nikon or Canon I would have been just as thrilled.

Whether I made the right choice, I wont know till months down the line when I get more comfortable with the camera and start noticing whether my pictures turn out bad because I dont know wha ti'm doing or if it's the cameras limitations.

At this point you might as well flip a coin, get the camera, and go out and start taking pictures...

I have an older 6MP Pentax (*istDS) and have made 20 inch wide, beautiful prints, even from ISO 1600 shots. The K100D Super is a highly capable camera that is not dumbed down or limited like other entry level cameras..

Unless the K1D professional model really rocks the world, I may "upgrade" to a K100D Super...

Mostly the pictures are family and fun. had(was stolen) a pan fz5 super zoom and I really liked at night had the noise issue and having 2 kids at birthdays and x-mas was awful otherwise was a good machine.look at these.

Like said many times before, there are no more "bad" DSLR's.Go to a store handle them all..

Myself have the Pentax K100D and very happy. Shake Reduction (SR) is a great advantage, gives you sharper pics and makes the lenses cheaper (even in full daylight). See my pics !.

Beware of Lens Buying Addiction tough.http://picasaweb.google.com/polvdahttp://www.flickr.com/photos/polvda/..
