I've used the Nikon 200mm f2.8 before. A Macro was a must as I stepped off into the Sony system. It focuses quickly with a hint of searching if the contrast isn't there. So far, I'm enjoying it to the max!!! It inspired me to shoot some of the flowers that I bought for my wife. The early end result was a very nice Mother's Day wish for her. I love having this capability and a mid-level zoom! Recommend that one adds it to their arsenal!

The perfect lens for Macro Photography.
I bought the a6300 a few weeks ago. I wasn't happy with the kit lens' image quality, so I decided to make an investment on a high-end lens and bought this one. After a few days of playing with the settings in my camera, I managed to get some amazing shots. I am not a professional, just an amateur. I don't know much about photography, but with this babe I feel like one. I am still learning how to shoot in manual. But using the auto mode still produces beautiful images especially when shooting in natural daylight. I am attaching a few photos. Hopefully they can be uploaded in high resolution.
The sharpest lens I have ever touched
I can't say enough about this lens. The more I use it, the more I fall in love with it. I use it on an a6500 so a 135mm FF equivalent focal length. It's an incredible macro lens and an equally impressive portrait lens. The AF isn't very quick but that's because of obvious reasons. This lens is sharper than anything I have ever used. Sharper than Sony's 85mm f1.4.
I really love this lens. The build is solid, easy to use. The optics produce clear sharp excellent photos. I also have the 50mm macro. The 90 mm is my preference by far!
Very good macro lens, Bokeh could be better.
The Sony 90mm Macro lens is extremely sharp with minimal distortion. The build in OSS works well. The camera body is constructed of mostly metal, including the focusing ring. The push/pull AF/MF switch is convenient to use.
This macro uses an electronic focus-by-wire system but with a well implimented physical distance indicator on the lens for those who need it.
The focusing speed is average, not too fast but not too slow either. It uses a silent wave motor so focusing is very quiet.
One thing I wish the lens would have is some more grip texture, as the lens is constructed of the smooth metal surface it gets slippery when your hand gets sweaty.
Magnificent pics but heavy for petite size person
It was a gift from my husband, I love the picks and quality, but since I am petite the lent is really heavy and I cant hold for so long the camera hanging on my nec, It will be great if Sony could minimize the weight of the Lents without lose quality, another point is, traveling abroad and with all the restrictions it is hard to carry on board without pay extra because of the size and weight of personal item.
