Advice on a Macro Lens for A6600

I recently purchased a Sony a6600, Sony 70-350mm and the Tamron 17-70mm f2.8 lenses and I am considering buying a macro lens (likely used). I am not going to get the Sony 90mm Macro (way too expensive for my purpose, granted it is a fantastic lens). I would only be using the lens for random stuff for fun and not professionally.

So I have been looking at the Sigma Macro 70mm, Sony 30mm Macro and even adapted A-Mount macro lenses (if I bought the LA-EA5) such as the Tamron 90mm, 60mm (used to have this on my old Sony A550/A55/A57) or even an older Minolta 100mm macro.

I have read mixed things regarding extension tubes, so not sure how good of an option they are (possible scuffing of contacts and AF can be affected).

Any advice is appreciated.
