This is a mini review, I only had access for a short while but as it's a friends camera I'll be able to give updates as it goes along.
The Eos 550D 18.7 mp (crop sensor) its claimed by Canon to use "Gapless micro lenses
First touted by Canon on the 50D, the EOS 550D's sensor has what are effectively gapless micro lenses, which significantly increases the efficiency of each pixel.".
It uses the digic 4 processor with an ISO range of 100-6400 expandable to 12.800, and 3.7 FPS.
The camera is very light to handle, and I'm told battery life is excelent, some 500+ pictures in and the owner hasn't recharged it yet (and thats with a lot of playing and chimping) The screen is big and bright, and the layout is similar enough to the 450/500 not to throw new users too much.
All in all I was quite impressed with the camera, it offers pretty good value for money IMHO.
My tests were done in a dimly lit room.

100% view at 100 iso with the kit lens, normal default sharpening in camera raw (CS5) resolution seems pretty good for an entry level camera.



Now the high iso test, 6400 iso no noise reduction, I was impressed how well the camera handled high iso, theres is some colour noise and luminance noise but it's fair for a high pixel crop sensor.



Heres the same image with some noise reduction in photoshop using noiseware pro.
