Which macro lens?
1

I was wondering what your favorite macro lens is.

I'm not much of a bug hunter, I most do botanicals and would like to branch out to some food shots. I have a Sony 30mm 2.8 on order and will get it on Friday. I'm considering this a gateway lens and am already planning on upgrading to something better, but what?

The Sony 100mm 2.8 macro looks temping and can double as a portrait lens. Then there's the Tamaron 90mm 2.8 macro that looks nice.

There's not a whole lot of choices in the Alpha line up but just enough to make it confusing.
