SL1 has same or lower performance than the T4i in most areas.

The only feature where the SL1 may (or may not) have an improvement over the T4i is the Live View/Video AF.  The T4i has 1st generation Hybrid CMOS AF, the SL1 touts Hybrid CMOS AF II.  I haven't seen a review that compares the performance of gen I v gen II.

Buying a new camera today, I would not be an "early adopter" and would stick with the T4i + 18-135 STM over the SL1 + 18-55 STM.  If I don't need it today, I'd wait and see how much of an improvement (if any) there is in the Hybrid CMOS AF II.  Plus, if you wait, the price of the SL1 will come down a bit.

IMHO, YMMV.
