Considering the new 550d...........
In reply to David Naylor, Feb 8, 2010

then it will be:

18mp-Same as 550D AND 7D(yes,yes,they are the same,they just kept 0,5-1 stop better high ISO noise for the 7D via software)
ISO 100-25600(usable up to 3200)
Single Digic IV(or maybe? Digic V)
+-4 fps for less than 10 RAW's
Full HD @ 30fps & manual controls
95-97% coverage pentaprism
iFCL metering(Same as 7D & 55D)
9 f/2,8 sensitive cross-type focus points(same as 50D)
Magnesium body but not weather sealed(same as 50D)

So it will be about $500 cheaper than 7D but without weather sealed body,1-stop worse high-ISO noise,a bit smaller and not 100% viewfinder and 50D's 9-point AF.

So Canon's line will be:
1000D $500
500D(until end 2010) $700
550D $900
60D(or 50D mkII) $1300
7D $1800
5DII $2300
1DIV $a lot
1DsIV $ a LOT
Let there be light
