Take a look at the new Sony A700, some of the review shots are awsomeMike Rudge..

All of them are good, some better than others, and all with their idiosyncracies. Have you read the reviews on dpreview? Prepare for the fanboys of particular brands to begin writing to tell you theirs is best. Remember, when you buy a dslr you are buying a system..

They all do the same thing in the same way and are all good (the Pentax equivalent would be the K10D probably). There is no 'best'; there are trivial technical differences between them but all have very good reputations.Pick them up in a shop and see how they feel; that matters more.Best wishesMike..

Unless you have a specific need that is best served by one of these cameras and that is not as well served by the others, the simple answer is all of them. Problem is, I can't think of a specific need that would make one of these products stand out over the rivals. If you were looking at expanding the system at a later date, there are slight advantages unique to each system (Canon remains the sport king, Nikon is still the flash master and Pentax does the best small 'pancake' lenses ideal for travel photography), but other than that, there's nothing in it..

Worse, you could also add the Olympus E-410 and Sony A100 to the mix, too (not the A700 as mentioned earlier, because it will cost more than any of the rivals you are looking at). These are also very good..

So go with the one that's the best deal, and the one you like the feel of best.You name it, I've broken it...

I couldn't agree with this more. The controls, buttons and feel of the camera need to be comfortable to YOU. Also, once you hold them, shoot them, work them, go through the menus, you'll come to like one more than the other(s). It'll just feel better to you..

As has been said before, they are all good cameras, you really can't go wrong, so be picky and choose the one that feels right, you'll take more pictures with that one .
