Tubes are cheap, and a good entry into macro but they don't replace a proper lens imo.

There is the laowa 65mm 2x macro which is less than half the price of the sony plus you can go up to 2x instead of 1x. It's manual focus only, but thats not a big issue for macro work imo.

+1 for the Laowa 65mm 2:1. After using the 2:1, I went out with a 1:1 lens, and felt very limited.

Here is a sample with the lens @ 2:1 and a6600. Not cropped but downscaled.
