Re: 18-55 or 18-135 for SL1???

thinking seriously of buying a SL1

why should i buy the 18-55 lens when i can buy the 18-135? the apertures appear to be the same. the 18-135 is a little bigger and more expensive but then i only have to carry one lens. seems to me that would be easier. is quality about the same?

i apologize for posting a similar question in eos rebel talk because i really didnt know where to post it.

New to Dslr here but just bought the SL1 with 18-55stm. I love it as it is light as feather. The combo is just about the same weight with my old S2 IS. I can hang it around my neck or put on my small backpack while I am cycling. Someone can still leave with a fixed lens like fuji x100.s so I think there is enough flexibility to my type of shooting already, but the extra reach is really nice. My suggestion is that if you go with SL1, better you stick with lightweight setup. Otherwise you may look for other options like 700D, Nikon, or from Mirrorless offerring.
