Pros and cons choosing first lens for A7 III

Hello all,

I'm about to get a A7 III, that's mostly decided due to budget and availability (a7R III is nice but I won't be printing big and I rather use my money on lens).

So far I'm between SEL90M28G and SEL55F18Z. Locally they cost about the same.

Price is about the same.

I had SEL55F18Z before and I loved it. It's small/light and a great performer. The only weak point was no macro.

Doing some research I came across SEL90M28G which seems to be quite good too... Maybe a little too big? From the rest it does look quite similar to the 55mm minus the wide open aperture... irl I used f1.8 very little...

Reading here some people seem to like SEL24105G as the "all in one" lens for this line. It does have a good enough magnification and it covers a wide range of focal lenghts... Still I'm not sure..

I'm sort of a hobbyist, would appreciate being able to explore macro photography... Will the macro lens limit me too much on the rest? (landscapes is the least concern, I'm ok with a phone for that)

All feedback/ideas/points to take into consideration are greatly appreciated.

Thanks !!!
