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. (I am not keen on a SD Quattro because with a zoom lens it would be too heavy and bulky. I prefer lighter smaller cameras when travelling).

Thanks in advance.

Yep, the dp0Q would be fine.  For night and interiors put it on a mini pocket tripod and use Super Fine Detail mode.  Pretty much the only camera I used in Venice. The dpOQ has a near distortion free lens. Probably my fave Sigma camera. One big advantage of the very wide lens is you can get up really close to subjects in popular places and this helps exclude tourists and other street clutter from the shots
