Getting an A7iii. Require advice on first lens for my needs.

I’ve decided to invest in the A7iii and have a budget of up to £1000 ($1200) for a lens. As a keen cook, I’m very interested in food photography. As well as taking portraits, I also find the idea of macro photography quite appealing.

I have three lenses in mind: 55mm f1.8, 90mm f2.8/macro and 24-105mm f4. I am leaning towards the 90mm as a first lens. I believe it ticks all the boxes, but I’m a little concerned that it might be restrictive as a walkaround lens.

I guess what I want to know is whether either of the other two lenses would serve well enough for photographing food? I haven’t owned a decent camera since I got rid of my Canon DSLR and lenses about 12 years ago. Back then, I had a 100mm f2.8 macro which was great but rather heavy. Most of the time my 50mm f1.4 was my preferred lens.

Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
