All-purpose might mean different things to different people...

But let's say you just decide "I don't care about macro or super telephoto anymore. I just want one lens and never have to think or worry about it." ...anyone get rid of all their lenses and just buy that pricey 28-300? Or one of those 18-270s?

Maybe you don't care about telephoto or macro only and just want one perfect normal lens and got the Zeiss Otus?

Do any of those lenses with huge zoom ranges perform well enough that they can comfortably replace primes at both ends of the zoom spectrum, and still get image quality that's 90% as good?
