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.

Thank for the feedback. I know RX1(R) is pretty special but do you really think its 24MP Zeiss f2 can best Nikon's 36MP D800E+Sigma 35mm?

I don't mind the slower AF.

I did compare the DF Sigma 35 mm combination with the Sony R X1 and came to the conclusion that the Sony R X1 had the better IQ. I know that the D800E has more resolution.
Both must be pretty good.
