Sir, Hats off to your excellent detailed review.
I'm an enthusiast considering Nikon D5100 and Canon EOS 550D as they are priced closely. However, I'm really unable to settle down with either of themGrin. Could you please let me know the best option according to you and if possible please post a comparison of both.
I would want Excellent Image Quality, Accurate color reproduction, consistent performance in all lighting conditions. Mainly, choice of lenses with a strong orientation on low price...
550D has a depth of field button - How far this button is useful.
Nikon has no dedicated ISO button - How often does a beginner or an enthusiast get to change the ISO? How good is D5100s Auto ISO?
Please solve my dilemma.. People say Canon's colors are best.. Nikon's user interface isn't so good...

No but if it is like the D5000 you should be able to assign the button next to the lens to be the ISO button.

The D5100 allows photographers of all levels to confidently execute new and creative ways to tell stories with amazing color and clarity. Whether shooting high over crowds or down low to a toddler’s point of view, the swing out style Vari-angle LCD screen makes it easy to compose and share great images. Displaying even the most subtle details with clarity, the super sharp LCD has a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 921,000-dot resolution, with the ability to rotate 180 degrees horizontally and vertically.

Hi Tarakesh - I think the best advise is to try both cameras if you can, as the feel of the cameras is quite noticeably different - the Nikon is really rather compact and the 550D (and 600D) is larger in the hand, so it would be down to personal preferences.
