Re: And where is proper HQ macro lens??!!

Okey - 85/1.4 nice, but what comes to proper macro lenses, we have nothing - just mediocre 30/3.5...

For macro, I personally don't see a good point in dedicating resources for it. Perhaps because I see Sony Alpha as a dual line, where E-mount can easily rely on the A-mount (a luxury the mirror-less competition doesn't have to the extent). It gets simpler with macro lens. Hence, I'm either going to use a legacy lens, or an A-mount anyway (currently, Sigma 70mm f/2.8, which is a beauty... previously Tamron 90mm f/2.8 which was fantastic too). For that matter, I would LOVE to get my dirty hands on a brilliant Minolta 200mm f/4 APO macro.

And Tiago made an excellent point. If there has to be a macro, I hope it to be spared of drive-by-wire system adopted by new lenses.
