I am looking at the specs of the above three cameras and am really confused as to what the actual differences are. Especially the difference in the DS2 ... why the big differential in price?

Can anyone post a short summary with the essential differences to help me choose?

Thanks folk...

The DS2 is basically a DS with larger LCD and new firmware already installed.

The DL is the budget model with:
a penta-mirror instead of a penta-prism,
only P-TTL flash automation instead of TTL as well,
3 point AF instead of 11 point and
a smaller buffer size which allows burst of 5 jpeg or 3 raw instead of 8 jpeg and 5 raw.
Other than that the three cameras are very similar. The DS2 is probably the best for overall flexibility but the DL (which I own) is still a very capable camera.

Alright everyone, did I miss anything?

You are correct, although the DS2 only supports TTL flash at ISO 200-400, and P-TTL throughout the ISO range, which I just found out. The DS supports TTL throughout the ISO range.
