Flash and Macro lens

Hello guys,

I would like to try macro photography but I completely newbie in this field.

I would like to know about your personal experience and thoughts.

First I am looking for a lens for Sony a7III.

I'm considering:

Sony 90 2.8 Macro

all looks cool but I worrying about not circular bokeh that someone reported and something that bothers me

Sigma 70 Art

looks cool too but focus distance is significantly smaller, and noisy AF that may spook wild insects.

Canon 100 2.8L

I already have an MC11.

Really good price especially I can buy used.

But I am worrying about AF performance since it is not a native lens.

Batis 40 CF

Not a true macro and also not circular bokeh.

Probably I should not consider it at all:) but personally, I do really like a color rendering from the Batis.

Also, I have a question about light.

I have a Godox AD200 flash,

should I consider to buy a flash ring or ad 200 could be enough?

or maybe there is some extension for the macro photography that would be good to buy.

Any thoughts, suggestions are welcome.
