Default First time dsrl buyer, ease of use, t2i?

Hi, as you might have noticed hace some other posts here regarding my first dslr parchase .
The t2i seems a little more complicated to use than say the pentax k-x or k-r, and the nikon d3100. Right now i am still torn between t2i and k-r, (have croases off the list the other two due to difieren reasons).
So finally my question, regardign these cameras how much harder to use is the t2i, is it just a perception thing i have? Or on a scale 1-10 how would you rate is ease of use?
Thank you all for helping me through this...

As far as I am concerned the 550d/T2i is easy to use one of the reasons I chose it

All of them are as easy or as difficult as you like. They all
have full-auto, semi-auto and manual modes.

If you are starting from scratch, it doesn't really matter
which one you buy. You will have to learn your way around
the various options available.

I have the Canon T1i. It took me a few days to figure
out the basics. You will find that Nikon and Pentax will
have a similar interface using a small number of buttons
to control the LCD screen menu options.

See the 'screens & menus' section of the Steve's reviews:

The T2i is very easy to use, the size and weight is good, even my 7 yr old can use it!
