The rare decay B -> K* l+ l- gives access to many angular observables that offer new important tests of the Standard Model and its extensions. We present a detailed study of these observables and point out a number of correlations which will allow a clear distinction between different New Physics scenarios. Furthermore, we discuss the decays B -> K* nu anti-nu, B -> K nu anti-nu and B -> X(s) nu anti-nu, which allow a transparent study of Z penguin physics. We study all observables accessible in these decays in the context of the Standard Model and various New Physics models.
