Macro lens advice

Since one month I am the happy owner of an X-T4

In the past I did shoot some macro, but I was more into bird photography so I am not very experienced.

Together with the X-T4 I use the XF 70-300 for insect/flower/butterfly photos and enjoy this a lot.

I am thinking about buying a macro lens to find out if I enjoy it, next to my bird photography.

Crucial for me is lightweight and I would love to have a lens with a 1:1 or 2:1 factor.

I have read about the Laowa 65 mm f/2.8 and the 7Artisans 60mm mkII

Both lightweight and reasonably priced to start with trying out macro.

Online and on dpreview I can find info about both lenses.

Do you know if there is a review/user experience where both lenses are compared to each other? Or can anybody in this forum give advice out of experience with both lenses? Or maybe you have a better suggestion that I didn’t think of!

Thank you in advance! Love to learn from your experience and get good information to help me decide what option might be best for me.
