If money is no concern then the DSLR'S are the obvious choice, if you need that much camera.
Personally, I don't know why people are comparing the A2 to camera's like a D70. Where I come from the D70 with a similar lens is more than twice the money.
It's like comparing a Nissan 350z and a Porsche.

"SONY is very responsive and listens to customer needs, they have>>> EXTENDED<<< the waranty on the F828 (that model only) from 90 days to 1 year."

Actually, Sony Electronics are rated among the worst for customer satisfaction and are currently losing marketshare at an alarming rate.

I dont know anything about the other two cameras but I have the Canon 300D and can tell you it is worth the money, shoots well in autofocus and all other modes. I love the DSLR mainly for the speed in which i can focus and take shots. I have a G3 prosumer which is a great camera but there is no way I could get some of the shots I manage with the 300D, the speed of focus counts for heaps.

IMO coming from the 10D, the A2 is probably one of the best value in digicam...

Try this camera sometime, if one stays around ISO 100 (just like shooting slides) :
o It's fast in AF as in shutter release
o It's affordable (less than a cost of a good lens)
o It's light and convenient
o Its macro leaves my 10D in the dust!
o ... and it has that real-time histogram as well as the WYSIWYG mode. :-)
