I had a Canon XTi with a few lenses and external flash...loved the photos it took but I hated dragging the thing around and was always worried I was going to bump into something and break it.

I sold it and got a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 (Lumix DMC-TZ7) and have been using it for well over 2 years and I have taken nice photos.

The other day I made the "mistake" of borrowing the T2i from work with just the kit lens to take photos of my little girls first day at school. My wife and I looked at the photos on the computer (no pixel peeping or anything) and she immediately said the photos look so much nicer as compared to the Panasonic. She also said the Panasonic does a nice job, but that you could not compare it.

So...now I'm debating on getting another DSLR (Canon T3i or Nikon D5100) or maybe the Panasonic G3. I would love a P&S that could come close to the speed and quality of a DSLR , 4/3 but I think that will not be possible.

What would you do?

Get your hands on them if you're thinking of the micro4/3 route. Yes, they are smaller than a SLR. But are they small enough to make the difference? Some lenses are smaller than others.
