All of the sudden on the eve of my first trip to Cuba, I'm having doubts about my camera/lens list.

At first I was going to just bring the RX1R and GR, since my favorite FLs are 35mm and 28mm for street and architecture. But then the more I think about it, the more confused I get. Any thoughts for the following alternatives?

1. D800E + Sigma 35mm ART for best IQ, RX1R as backup 35mm, GR in pocket (missing longer FLs)

2. D800E + Sigma 35mm ART for best IQ, Df + Sigma 24-105mm to cover important FLs (but may be too heavy)

3. D800E + Sigma 24-105mm ART (potentially outresolved by camera), RX1R as backup 35mm

4. Df + Sigma 24-105mm ART (definitely not outresolved by camera), RX1R as backup 35mm

Your feedback is welcomed, my pre-trip jitters are not helping me think clearly.

Option 4 would be my choice. RX1R beats in my opinion the D800E + Sigma 35 combination in IQ but not in AF. Option 3 is pretty close.
