One of the things that surprised me while renting the 28-200mm was how competent it was for near-macro shooting.  Cropping in on the A7RIII allowed for quite nice magnification.

I have yet to process the full images, but this one caught my eye:

Cropped in with 27% structure applied.

Considering how many other things this lens does well, I'm shocked that it can also double (quintuple?) as a reasonable macro solution.  I wonder what would be possible with some extension tubes; might be worth a try.
