Very nice shots in the Vatican and Rome.  I also enjoyed the history lesson with each shot.  I was particularly interested in how well the SL1 did with the slow kit lens.  I have a 60D and several lenses, and I'm thinking the SL1 with my 18-135 IS ought to be an excellent travel set up and almost a pound lighter than my 60D.

Years ago, my wife and I did a walking tour of Rome starting at the Theater or marcellus and woking our way over the the Pantheon and then to the Trevi fountain.  It was a hot day and I was carrying a Canon 20D with a Sigma 18-125 around my neck.  By the end of the day, I was seriously considering trying to see if the 20D could swim the Tiber.  On my return home, I bought the Pro 1 as a replacement as it saved 23 oz.  I also discovered the S70 did as well or better than the 20D/18-125 as far as image quality went.

I  did notice that you thought the G1X was better in low light, and had better color; although i thought the SL1 did very well.
