Lens discussion: apsc portrait / semi-macro hybrid

Hi everybody,

what do you say on lens for shooting both portraits and semi-macro / close-up photos, primarily in nature, on trips etc.? The exemplar for this idea is probably Fuji's 60mm f2.4 macro, which seems to be very handy lens for apsc bodies - sharp, compact and can go to 1:2 magnification. Unfortunately no such option for Sony, not even close. I listed through the DPR database and made comparison below.

Would you buy lens such as eg. Sony / Sigma / Tamron 60mm f2 macro 1:2?

PS: I know about FE 50mm f2.8 macro, faster lens with faster AF would be niceĀ
