Good thread, I'm also considering the two Konas for my next bike, just not in the near future.
I can't comment much for the Gary Fisher, except that I don't like hybrids.
For the Konas, the Smoke has 26" wheels, you can get more(also cheaper) selection of off-road tires, while the Dew looks like it's more intended for road/packed trails. Also note that both are rigids, so they might not be that comfortable off road.
The Konas can't take disc brakes, but I really don't think you need disc brakes anyways
