In response to your comment about trying to find another camera to compliment the G1X, I bought the SL1 and the 18-55 STM and then added the 18-135 STM ...a little redundant to have both, but I actually use both, but only take one when I travel.

I love the touch screen on the SL! and the very lightweight lenses which have super fast AF compared to my larger dSLR lenses for my 7D, and are quite sharp as well. This G1X / SL! combination has turned out to be a real blessing for travel. If you haven't checked out the SL! give it a try. It does everything that I actually use on my 7D. Great camera !

Thank you for the recommendation Carolyn - Tony said the same thing. Wisdom in a multitude of counselors. I am heavily considering it...

"No...really...my camera made me do it..."

Jay - I thought you might like to see a few shots from last year's Italy trip when I was using the SL1 / 18-55 /STM and the G1X. I think I used them about equally, with the G1X mostly indoors in museums , as it is so great in (often mixed) light. The EXIF shows which camera and settings. There is also commentary below each image which may or may not be of interest. It's the old "teacher" in me !

Here is a gallery of images shot the first day I had the SL1, where I was experimenting indoors with very low light and various high ISO's. There are also some images shot outdoors in very contrasty light. You will note some duplications of subjects on the low light images, as I was trying out different ISO's on the same subject and light.  No PP on these images except for some cropping and resizing which is noted.

Hope these might help show you how nice the SL1 is.
