I would like to always keep the same time zone set in the camera - for example UTC - no matter where I take pictures.
In the import dialog, I would like to be able to set the time zone of the location where the photos were taken, and Lightroom will adjust the time of the photo accordingly.

You may be aware that right after import, you can select all the imported photos and do Metadata > Edit Capture Time to shift the time zone of all newly imported photos?  Not as convenient as having a time-zone shift in the import dialog, but just a few extra keystrokes.
