Nah, it‘ll be about temples, shrines, gardens and nature (Kyoto, Nara, Koyasan, Kumano Kodo). We‘ll be in Osaka for a day but that‘s about in regarding modern Japan.

Technically this translates to:
- dark places (temples) -> Dual IS will come handy
- neat details (shallow DoF)
- architecture & landscape -> at least 24mm

Not so much:
- long tele (>150mm)

I really enjoyed the aquarium in Osaka. Ride up an escalator to the top (go figure) into a rain forests then spiral down to the bottom of the ocean. One of the best.

You are just trying to talk Klaus into bringing the A7 FF series gear, right? Wink

I'm still not 100% sure. I have till Saturday ;-)

The Oly 12-100mm PRO is super tempting ... but ...

My spouse will take the Sony A7R II with the Zeiss 35mm and Sony 85mm f/1.8

Hmm, either

A) Congratulations on your marriage, since your girl friend mutated to a spouse in the course of this thread. 

or
B) Going to Japan with a girl friend and a spouse...   Sounds very interesting...

She isn't really that much into it but I have to keep her occupied while shooting myself. ;-)

Why does this sound familiar ?
We're in the same boat
Wait till you'll have a baby and wife asks you to carry diapers in your camera bag "instead of all those lenses"

Well, that use case doesn't apply. ;-)

FWIW, I took the Oly 12-100mm PRO ... and I'm glad I did (instead of carrying more). We just had a couple of days near 30C and around 90% humidity (no rain) ... and I was just melting.

We are in Koyasan now. If you ever visit Japan - don't miss this one!
