Are you planning on using these lenses with autofocus? You might want to reconsider. Macro lenses have enormously long focus throws and they have a tough time sometimes maintaining focus. I just tested the Sony 90mm macro with the A7SIII. It works but I probably would use it manually in certain circumstances. It does hunt on occasion and it's noisy too.
It really depends on how you plan on using the lens.
I've seen some incredibly entertaining videos using food and the Laowa 24mm macro probe lens!
