I gave two friends of mine this same advice when they were shopping for DSLRs (along with a recommendation they buy Canon so I could borrow their lenses ;)) One ended up with a Nikon D80. The other chose a Pentax *ist, specifically for the fact that he preferred the feel and operation of it and found it the most comfortable to use of all those he tried (he'd also considered a Sony, as well as a couple Nikons and Canons).
good. Reviewers live to find and trumpet very small differences that
often don't matter.
There seems to be a consensus among all of the reviews I have read that
while Sony and Pentax have some nice features the results are more noisy,
somewhat over processed looking and more soft than those taken with Nikon
I don't know about Sony and Pentax, but both Canon and Nikon allow you to select from various pre-defined processing options, as well as define some of your own. These are used when the camera generates JPEG files and include such options are sharpening, contrast, brightness, saturation, etc. You could easily create one that cranks up the sharpening, so that the JPEGs produced look "crisper" than those from another camera.
As John so rightly points out, "Reviewers live to find and trumpet very small differences that often don't matter" - these are among them. If the final output is that important to you, you learn to shoot RAW format, so all those processing options become irrelevant.
