Well, this has turned into a fun discussion, and if it hasn't left you more conflicted than when you began, I'm surprised.  Basically, there are many wonderful options out there that will delight you.  For a killer low-light indoor combo, you'd be hard-pressed to beat a K-30 or refurbed D7000 with the Sigma 18-35/1.8 (or 2.8-or-under budget alternative).

Beyond that is really a matter of what you presently (or hope to) do with your hobby.  Great video and telephoto lens availability with Canon.  Great flash systems and availability of borrowable-from-friends equipment with Nikon or Canon.  Stabilized use of primes and legacy lenses with Pentax.  The only option I've seen mentioned here with focus peaking is the K-30, which you really have to try with a good macro lens to appreciate the joy of.  These cameras are all so good--just grab the one that expands your interests the most and go enjoy it.
