Focus Breathing :(
5

This lens has focus breathing. This means that if you intend to run the focus stacking app on an A7RII, you're out of luck: as the app changes focus, the zoom level also changes.

Focus breathing makes a macro lens near-useless, for me, at least. I wish I knew about this before buying this. Now I end up doing my stacked macro shots on a non-macro lens that doesn't have focus breathing.

Do not buy if you intend to do focus stacking.
