Re: A99 lens


One of the best is the Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di 1:1 Macro (272ES).  Depending on your budget, you should also consider the following, but as you want to shoot bugs etc, a short macro say 30mm - 50mm will spook your subjects, so 90mm - 105mm would be ideal:

Minolta AF 100mm F/2.8 1:1 Macro, Sigma AF 105mm F/2.8 1:1 EX DG Macro, Cosina/Vivitar/Promaster/Voightlander AF 100mm F/3.5 MC 1:2 Macro (plastic fantastic), Tokina AT-X 100mm AF F/2.8 1:2 Macro.  In the short 50mm range, both the Minolta AF 50mm F/3.5 1:2 Macro and Minolta AF 50mm F/2.8 1:1 Macro.

You would be well advised to go onto the Dyxum website lenses section and input your search criteria and research the results, though you won't do much better than the Tamron 272ES for a true 1:1 reproduction though the Minolta 100mm is also well regarded.
