The easiest way to go beyond 1:1 is with the Laowa 100mm 2.8 macro lens which goes to 2:!. Plenty of online reviews and it is very highly regarded.

If you want to go beyond 2:1 you can try the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5x macro though this is a dedicated macro lens which does not have infinity focus - it only does 2.5-5x macro. I would suggest trying the 100mm 2X macro lens first as the 2.5-5X 25mm is quite a specialized lens and you'd probably want a precision macro rail.

I have both and they are optically excellent and have no problems with the 45MP sensor D850 (also available in Z mount). Despite their high optical and build quality, they are both very reasonably priced at around $400.
