Wow, great shots everyone!

So I will be moving to Tokyo for 6 months from April to September to write my master thesis and I am wondering what lenses to bring/buy.
Currently I have the 18-55 kit and the 40mm 2.8.
I love low light shooting, so I think I will either buy the old sigma 30mm 1.4 or wait for the new one (the new 35mm is probably out of my budget).
For everything else I am considering the 15-85.

What do you guys think?

I'm not sure if I buy them here in Germany/Switzerland or just wait to be in Japan and buy them there. (I will do that for a tripod, because I just can't decide yet and so will pick one up there.)

If you're planning of buying here, I can recommend a great camera shop here in Japan (place is in Shinjuku) www.mapcamera.com (external link) that carries brand new and second hand pieces. Prices are reasonable and they got wide choices of lenses.

@Z32: Great shots!

I really appreciate that from you! your HDR shots inspired me when I made my trip to Japan back in November. I could live there and shoot forever! there is just so much to capture. I still keep an eye on this thread and follow you on flickr =)

Brilliant shots, I am going there in December. How did you find the up-high spots to shoot from in your night scenes?

You've got to go up Mori Tower in Tokyo at night. Daytime, of course, is good too, but nighttime views are spectacular and you can take endless shots of Tokyo from above - from 180 degree angles. In Yokohama go to the Landmark Tower in Minatomirai. Same amount of awesomeness.

The rest depends on how long you are planning to be there and how you are planning to spend your time. But the two locations above are an absolute must.
