I agree with all of you, and especially with the O/P's comments. I'm getting older too.... (well all are !), and currently still travel a lot , but I am beginning to understand and see the difficulties in foreign travel. I have the G1X and SL1 (plus 7D and 50D and assorted nice lenses). I have loved my G1X for indoor shots in museums, churches and in my home. It has great colors in low light and the less than optimal OVF has gotten me some nice pictures in extremely bright light when the LCD was impossible to see. Since I'm not into action or BIF's, the slight shutter lag is no issue. I am really happy that the O/P decided to go for the original G1X. I'll bet he will be a happy camper... even at home ! :-). And go for the David Busch book Jay B suggested. It is very helpful !

Thank you so much, Carolyn. I am just ready to click on SEND for the camera and book. Should have them by Thursday at latest and will post here after I get it going.

Cheers.... carolyn

I thought you might like to see a few shots with the G1X, so below is a gallery shot in Paris in May 2012 with the G1X, with a lot inside museums. The second gallery was shot around the house and outdoors using the G1X. Mostly only resized, any pp is noted below the image.
