I cannot decide between the Sony A-560, Pentax K-R or the Canon EOS 500/450

eos 500d is the t2i a d3100 is actually a step backwards to that model for not much difference in price - the sony is bout the same cost as t2i but  almost same par as the t3i

I'm trying to choose between the Nikon D3100, Canon EOS 500D and this one. Image quality and price is what matters the most I guess.
Please help :)
