A versatil lens is the 100mm f/2.8 macro (new Sony or legacy Minolta).

I have had my Minolta 100mm f/2.8 macro for 27 years and it works and looks like new. The point is this lens should be part of your stragety and be around for a ong time (so do it right).

The 100mm f/2.8 macro is also great for portraits or a short low light telephoto.

Good Luck

Any time I am putting something on ebay to sell I grab my Minolta 100mm f/2.8 macro and set it to manual focus and go at it.  It's simple to use and gives predictable results.

Below items were sold a couple years ago (shot with Minolta 100mm f/2.8 macro sample images only):
