My biggest concern by far when visiting a place is how wide the lens is...

So it depends on your style. I am perfectly happy with my panasonic lx3's 2.5x zoom because it starts at 24mm...

24mm isn't very wide.  My next trip is going to include a 16mm-equivalent rectilinear and a 180 degree fisheye.
