If iso is a concern, check out the new Sony entry level a500 and a550.
While its true that the a2x0 and a3xp is marginally more noisy than the Canon and nikon at high, the a5x0 is a huge improvement, over taking the Canon and Nikon entry level dslr's noise control.
i am not considering sony as i wanted video in my Dslr (or any still camera that i maybe using) as i hv habit of combining video + photos in my final family video presentation
but no doubt sony is also a good brand.. i go now see sample shot of A5xx and see see
Every brand have it's own pros and cons.
There is no brand with "perfect" functions and specs.

Considered the recently launched Pentax K-x? Seems to be giving very good high ISO shots according to various reviews and user reports. And it has video. You might want to pop over to the Pentax discussion area for a look.
This is a good thing for Sony and Pentax camps, we never had to worry about paying more for IS in the lens.
And before you say "but having stabalizer build into lens sure better than in body what", take a look at this video and determind for yourself.
a comparison of having stabalizer in lens vs having in body, including a final test of having BOTH stabalizer in body and lens on at the same time.
BTW the test was conducted using the olympus E510, so its not a gauge of the pentax and sony DSLRs. Considering that pentax k-x and sony a5x0 came out much later than the E510, there is a possibility that the IS of these newer cameras are better than the E510.

this is a total WTT
because it has descended into yet another brand war...
Photography is about creating works of art through your skills with your equipment and your creativity... It's an art form, not a "mine is better than yours" competition. Too many gearheads...
I wonder if Renoir ever compared the quality of his canvas, brushes and oils with Monet, for example
hear hear hear!
No skill, with the best camera, pictures also look like dung.
Sad.. nowadays expensive camera becoming much like an LV bag. For show only. You carry Pentax or Olympus people laugh at you, say what kind of brand are those and picture can make it or not. LOL.

actually the technology always changes and the camera brands always leap frog each other
so stick with the brand that you feel comfortable with
