Pros: Easy Menu Interface
Great Low Noise Performance at high ISO
Great Video Quality in Video Mode!
15 MP resolution allows alot of flexibility in cropping
Easy to navigate menu system makes Manual settings easy
Cons: -Slow flash recycle time. If you use the onboard flash be prepared to wait 3 seconds for flash to recycle.

Summary: I currently have a Canon 20D which is a great camera but I have found much to like in this latest addition to the rebel family. The light optimizer really does a great job in bringing out details in shadow areas. I did a few group pictures that really benefited from this feature.
I am really happy with the advances they have made in their menu system. Everything from Speed, Aperature, ISO, Picture Styles, White Balance are all readily available without searching through several dials and menus. Great Job Canon! If you're someone who enjoys shooting in full manual, this camera makes it easy!
Stills pulled from Video are great!
You really do get alot of camera for your money.
