So while I am still considering the 30mm macro (its an amazing price at $150) I am still looking at the 50 and 100mm macro leses. For me the prices are very close, about $100 apart so deciding between them is mostly down to what I want. I do have plenty of experience shooting with my nifty 50 on my 77, so I am leading towards that.

The 50mm 2.8 Macro is the sharpest lens I've seen on A mount. While I haven't enjoyed the massive library of some of the fellow Alpha users here, I've had opportunity to compare to the 28-135, 70-210, 50 1.7, 28 2.8, 75-300 New, 24-105, Tamron 70-300, 18-55, 35-80 and a few more. This was handheld leaning into an aquarium - my little Crabby guy. He's been the subject of several cameras, actually.
