Ditra vs. plywood vs. cement board

I'd appreciate any thoughts on the pros and cons of Ditra vs plywood vs cement board for use in installing ceramic tile in a new home. One contractor recommends cement board, period. Another says he'd recommend Ditra first, plywood second, and cement board last. Both seem very knowledgeable and give good arguments for all. The plywood would be 3/8" over 5/8" base. We have 16" OC floor joists. We plan to install the tile in the kitchen/foyer area and bath. Can someone help us decide? Thank you! Pam
