I agree with Ken Rockwell (see http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/mpmyth.htm) that for real photography there's no effective difference between 6 and 8 megapixels. I'm very pleased with my DS2. Besides, with a larger sensor than the Olympus, the overall image quality (color, noise, etc.) may be better on the Pentax. Choose whichever meets your needs best, but 6 vs. 8 MP is probably not a deciding factor.
