In good situation, I can hold up to 1s with IS. I would avoid comparing some time/shake specifiactions. Outside of this, I agree. 28-112 lens of that grade is not there for DSLR, but there are many better, and I still managed to put my SL1 in a pocket (devil smiley)....

I'm using a 450D (12 MP) with the 15-85IS, which is a bit similar in range and sensor size to the G1X II; but the 15-85 is 1-1.5 stops slower and much bigger than the G1X II lens. My impression from looking at online images from the original G1X is that its lens is about the same quality as the 15-85IS, maybe a bit better.

I agree that 13 MP sounds a bit outdated for a camera at this price level, but if the lens is really good the result could be better on average than what you get with SL1 + 15-85IS. And all that in a cheaper, lighter and much smaller package. Of course, if the 18-55IS kitzoom is all you need then the SL1 is cheaper and lighter ...
