    Ok, soooo I have the A7Rii and a6500 wanting a macro lens.... There is the Sony 90mm Macro and finally the Zeiss Touit 50mm
    I am thinking of getting the Zeiss Touit b/c for Underwater scuba diving Im housing the a6500.
    I know on the a6500 I get 75mm with the Zeiss 50mm Macro.
    How will it perform on the A7Rii? The MP will be down to 42MP/1.5/1.5 = 18.6MP but what about close focus distance, will it behave like on the a6500? Minimum focus distance is listed at 6"or 15.29 cm or will it go to 30cm on the A7Rii?
    Any insight? Thanks

    I have the Zeiss Touit macro that I use on my A7rii. It is super sharp as you would expect - focusing is a little slow but I think you expect that with a macro. You can focus pretty much up to the front of the lens hood which I imagine is about 6 inches from the sensor.

    Incidentally there is an FE 50 macro 2.8 which is a lot cheaper.

    Does yours make quite some noise when focusing? Just got mine... it is quite loud compare to the Batis (which is silent)
