Best bang for buck, a secondhand Tamron 90mm with built-in motor.

Assuming it is compatible with Z AF - 90mm is still a bit short for insects.

Manual focus using a tripod is best for static insects - after leaning the field craft of getting close without them taking off.

Most beginners wanting to try out insect photography start with AF - which has the advantage of usually best for insects in flight.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than the equipment being used.
