Help Me Choose a Macro

Hi everybody,

I'm doing some table top jewelry photos and would like to use a macro for the smaller stuff like earrings. I've gotten away with the kit lens for larger objects like necklaces or groups of earrings and rings. I'd love to get the 90mm Sony but that's out of the budget right now and I usually focus manually anyway when shooting tabletop still life stuff. The 30 APS-C macro is affordable but probably too short a focal length. Is the Rok 100mm F2,8 a good and sharp lens? Since I'm ok with manual focusing and oldskool manual lenses with a dumb adapter would be ok to. It just has to be sharp with nice rendering. I know that's subjective but.....

BTW I always shoot raw and PP.

Here are some examples of what I've shot before.

Thanks for any and all help
