Default Best choice is?

Currently have a Sony A550, have roughly 1000 to spend as an upgrade to that, camera will only be used with kit lens most likely so variety of system accessories not important.
Things i dont like about my sony is size, and somewhat plasticy build, those aspects must be improved on, thinking Pentax K7 V Canon 550 V Nikon D90 V Sony A55, thoughts on those please, cheers!

If you can hold out a little while longer, Sony has made several mentions of releasing a new "system camera" in the spring of 2011. Presumeably this will be the long awaited replacement for the discontinued A700.

And if you don't like the small size of the A550, you won't think much of the Canon 550D or the Sony A55 either. They're even smaller.
