Re: Best Macro for Sony A7RIV?

You asked about a macro lens but haven't mentioned anything about actually shooting macro. Your stated priorities seem to be street, portraiture and good AF.

AF macro lenses have extra glass to move when focusing, so they are generally slower than equivalent non-macro primes. Not ideal for your main uses really.

Why not a decent 2nd hand 85mm or perhaps even 135mm (to extend the focal range of your collection which is a bit crowded at the wide end)?

Extension rings or a good macro-filter would support any occasional macrophotography, until you get hooked 🙂
