Pentax *ist DS - Sony V-3 - Nikon 8800

It seems you have chosen three cameras that are in three different classes.

The DSLR, 7meg class, 8meg class

Here is a comparison of specifications:

The Pentax has fastest shutter.
All are good quality
None should be considered easy to use.

The most capable, most expensive is the Pentax.
You will need to know a good bit about photography (or willing to learn) to utilize it to the fullest.

Pentax *ist DS

The Pentax *ist DS is extremely easy to use in the auto picture mode. Then as your photo skills advance you have the option to use the other features of the camera. The *ist DS is a real SLR (not an LCD viewfinder). $900.00 w/ 18-55mm lens.
