I shoot with both systems so I better chime in here.  I don't know about the Pentax models you're specifically referring to but it seems you're already getting a lot of good advice about them.  The D3100 is a capable camera and I've seen some good results from it.  It is Nikon's most basic current offering and I think a couple years old technology.  So it certainly won't have many of the features we're used to in higher end cameras like a K7/K5.  Nikon wants one to upgrade for improved features like most camera makers.  D3100 does have decent resolution at over 14 MP.   Videos are a possibility with it but get an external mike.  Also have you considered used cameras in other brands?
