Hi,

all the FL for macro lenses have their application and it depends in part of the working distance.

Using a macro lens for portraiture has its caveats because it may be too sharp - but I prefer taming down overly sharp appearance in PP.

A point to consider is the price and here the offerings from Tamron and Sigma mostly have advantages over Minolta / Sony models.

You mentioned specifically the FL of 30, 50 and 100mm. I'd suggest to add the already mentioned Sigma 2,8/70mm which I consider an ideal compromise what concerns working distance for macro work and the FL for the use as a portraiture lens (BTW for both APC and FF).
