Hello, I will be visiting Athens and the Greek islands on vacation soon. So far, on all my vacations I have used a camera with a zoom lens. Do you think a fixed lens camera like a [dp0] or a [dp1] would be suitable as an only camera? My genre of photography are landscape, architecture and close ups of flowers etc.

In terms of composition, especially for reasonable perspective, I would take the dp1 because you mentioned close-ups.

But that was not your question. For vacation, I would prefer a range-finder style camera, m43/APS-C with a reasonable zoom lens on it.

(I am not keen on a [sd] Quattro because with a zoom lens it would be too heavy and bulky.
