    Hi all,
    I'm currently lacking a decent macro lens, or at least one with a short minimum focus distance, and so I struggle to get the real teeny tiny close ups. Is there some sort of macro that can be used either for portraits too, or a zoom lens which goes from a short macro to around 50mm or more? I'm not sure what the native lenses are like so I posted in the adapted section, but if anyone has experience with the e-mount macro and zooms, that'd be great to hear about.
    Cheers.

    I've heard that the Tamron 90mm macro is considered pretty good for portraits and a very good macro lens. I have the 72B f2.8 version which goes from infinity to 1:1 without any adapters or extensions. The older 52B, 52BB versions are nice too, but requires an adapter to get to 1:1. Goes to 1:2 without.
