It took me a little bit to get used to its idiosyncrasies, I find it works best in DMF mode with focus peaking, to really nail the shot. For the price, which is half the Sony 90 G Macro, it's tough to beat.

I'd wish for something like that with 2x magnification. Or something like the Laowa 2x with AF etc. Sadly, anything AF and usable for normal portrait shooting as well as well as affordable seems always to be 1x at best.

I don't disagree with you, but I think for that level of magnification, at least in my experience, you need manual focus (or at least manual assist) to nail the shot. I find that I need to start with AF and then tweak with manual to get the shot I'm hoping for.

Absolutly It's not that I want to use the AF with Macro usually .. it's just that it'd be nice to have AF, when you can use the lens as normal lens as well, as a portrait lens etc.
