It is not clear whether you want:

  • telephoto magnification for distant subjects

  • or macro magnification

  • or both

As to macro magnification, the shorter focal length of the lens the closer the focusing distance to get a given magnification.

I.e. macro with 14mm get you impractically close to the subject, specially a subject in nature as opposed to staged on a mount in a lab.

That is why most macro work is done with lenses in the midrange, say 40-60mm in m43 terms.
