First for rental, go see / contact my friends at borrowlenses.com they will hook you up with whatever you need.
BTW locals just call it the "City" so don't get caught calling it "frisco" JK LOL.
The lens selection can get allover the map, there is a ton to see and do. You have so much to shoot, you will need a month of Sundays just to scratch the surface.
Start with W/A and go from there. Get the touristy stuff out of the way first, then go and explore. Google walking tours to get local neighborhood feel for the different areas. One of my favs is Chinatown.
Yosemite.. for a day? Are you kidding me? It is nearly a days drive depending on the day and traffic just to get there. The zooms are really best, but weather, and tripods are always an issue. Plan your shoes to be comfortable, and keep a jacket handy, it can get cool in Baghdad by the Bay really quick.
Just remember to look up, the buildings have lots of really cool facades to shoot.
