I found that when comparing these two cameras side by side, The Lumix G10,and the Rebel EOS T3, are both great cameras,The picture quality is good on both, Although the Lumix may not have the same selection of lenses available, It is a M4/3rd and the lenses that are available would cover you in almost any shooting situation/environment, There may only be 26 dedicated M4/3rd, there are just as many if not more Olympus lenses that are interchangeable. Another note to mention, is that if you like IS go with the Lumix, It's IS is built-in to the body of the camera, not just the lenses as w/ the Rebel T3. In this case, what makes or breaks these two cameras is the speed, capacity, and quality of the memory card you stick in them,, I also have a Kodak Max, that blows both of these cameras away with it's built in tele-photo zoom lense,, The Kodak, Is still my go-to camera, The other two(Canon/Panasonic) are nice to brag about though.
