Paris gear choices

The after effect of GAS is a paralysis of what to take with you on holiday. Normally I just don't care and take everything, but I want to be a bit more selective.

I'm going to Paris for a few days. Mostly will shoot places and family snaps. Obvious choice for me is the 16mm1.4 but that has the downside of making my female family members look bloated. So I started thinking of combos.

Note: I hate changing lens in the field, hence 2 bodies.

1. Xf16f1.4 on X-T2 + xf35f1.4 on X-PRO2

(But misses my beloved 23mm FL, and 35 is not WR)

2. Xf161.4 on X-T2 + xf27 on X-PRO2

(Easier to pocket the pro2 and T2 around my neck/bag, 27 is not quite right for me - too wide and too narrow)

3. Xf16f1.4 on X-T2 + xf23f2 on X-Pro2

(Too close together? Nothing narrow enough for a good face photo)

4. Xf16-55 on X-PRO2

(Not really fast enough for dark museums)

Help, please. I just got even worse paralysis writing this. Maybe I'm just not thinking hard enough!
