I've used the Sony 90 macro and the Voigtlander 100mm 2X macro.

here you mean the Laowa, right?

I recommend you checkout Laowa's offerings. The lack of CPU contacts is frustrating, but the image quality is excellent and the extra macro range is nice to have.

certainly the price is good. That frustrating part I don’t like. Cannot use any MF assist from my A7RIV and also no aperture visible. Indeed frustrating. Don’t know if I want that. IQ seems very good and I really like that extra macro range as an option!

The main benefit of the 90 macro is that it doubles as a portrait lens, and it's fast enough to track erratic wildlife at lower reproduction ratios (0.25-5x?)

I probably do not use it for portraits (have my Batis 85 for that). Tracking erratic wildlife (insects), is great. How does it deal with small movements in 1:1?

But between the options, I prefer the Laowa.

Because of lack of CPU contacts/communication I already skipped the Laowa. But maybe I shouldn’t.
