I would go with the SL1. Keeps in with the system, the kit 18-55 can be used on the M via the adaptor, and you have a B body that handles like an SLR should the occassion require it.Thanks but I already got the G1X + Sunpack RD2000 flash and 18-55 IS STM ... they arrived today. Despite its weaknesses I like the G1X ... here are the first few random pics taken of my (double glassed & a bit dirty) office window ... nothing great, just testing the camera. Both images are of the same plane, the first image is while it was getting ready to enter the runway and the next is when it was taking off.
I'm an M user, and can vouch for the 22 and the m18-55 (only flaw, typical of its class, is barrell distortion near the edges and slow max aperture as your FL increases) but the m18-55 will only work on the M. You can get the same coverage with the SL1 kit lens and this is perhaps the more versatile option.
