The question. Thank you. I have only 16-35 GM and 20mm G. But is it worth it comparing to so many new lenses?

If you have need of a macro lens, then the Sony 90mm is a fantastic choice -- it's a wonderful lens.

But if you're just looking for something around that traditional portrait focal length for general use, and you don't actually need the macro capability, then I'd go with something like the Sony 85mm f/1.8.  It's smaller, lighter, cheaper, and faster (both in terms of its aperture and its AF speed).
