    Leaving Thursday at 0'Dark-Thirty for two weeks in Japan.

    Usually I travel with my Leica M10 and a trio of lenses (28/2, 35/2 and 50/0.95), but this time, I'm leaving it all behind and taking just my newish Fuji X100F and the TCL-II (which I expect to spend most of the the time in the bag).

    I would not advise this unless you are very comfortable with it. The idea to take much less is good but traveling with a newish camera could prove frustrating.

    We've been to Japan many times and this trip are focusing on Onsen and staying close to Tokyo.

    I've already taken it out for two full days of street photography and am quite comfortable with it's operation. I basically use it in almost the exact same configuration as my Leica anyway and have it configured for aperture priority, center-point only autofocus, manual ISO and shoot RAW. Really the only difference in controls between the Fuji and my Leica is that focus is controlled by a half press of the shutter instead of a manual focusing ring and of course I can switch the viewfinder to other modes, which I'm very familiar with at this point.

    I don't own the wide adapter yet. I plan on shooting 90% of the time with just the standard lens, and would only use the tele for portraits or possibly some more intimate indoor venues.

    I'll probably add the wide adapter later on.

    Enjoy the trip! I was there last November/early December and tend to visit pretty much yearly. Excellent photography playground, as you know!

    You will have a so wonderful time!
    5+ years ago I were in Japan with my x100 and couldn't get my finger of the trigger (2 weeks 14k of photos)
