Would be the Panasonic ZS10 and nothing else.

Sure... it won't provide the best image quality... but are most vacationers and travelers really doing a lot of low light photography, taking a lot of macro shots, or shooting a lot of high speed action/sports?

Yes, when I travel I do low-light, night shooting, lots of macro (frogs, bugs, etc.), wide angle architecture, streets and interiors. Factories and construction sites and railroads. I have a thing for graffiti, odd signs, public markets and storefronts. I love decay in all forms!

But, who's talking about tourists and tourist spots? When I travel, I avoid both like the plague.

I AM nice to tourists who like to pose for pictures on my front stoop... I live in a landmarked NYC brownstone with some cool details and ironwork... so I'll even get them to pose and use their cameras for them.

Do you really want to bring everything you might possibly need for any possible shot with you?

No, just a few good lenses, covering a reasonable range. Although, I might be tempted to bring my macro, or just use close-up lenses. I used to carry longer zooms, but found I rarely use them.
