I'd go with the Sony A580 before any of the others. The Canon 60D would be my second choice, based on specs alone. But I think you should wait and see what happens whe you try them out in th estore.

If you can't comfortably hold the camera, if you can't find the controls and commands when you need them, you'll miss shots and be dissatisfied with the camera. So try, in this order, the A580, 60D, T3i, and A55.

As this is your first dslr then I would look at the following do i need a body thats weather proof, one of your post mentions hunting wildlife. for that you would need some long fast glass to get good results and they are expensive.
My advice is go and try some cameras see how they feel. You cannot get a jack of all trades lens if you are moving up to dslr then some research needs to be done in what you need, and in the end you may decide that a dslr isn't for you. good luck
