has anyone tried the 50mm 1.8 attached to two extension tubes (http://www.amazon.co...3HTGN7IBF2TK1)?
any guess to the expected results?

yes, just like nikon ff lens on aps c. same crop factor. i.e the 35 2.8 would be 52.5mm and 55mm would be 82.5mm
So if Sony does indeed come out with a 100ish-mm macro for FE, as rumors suggest, then it would be similar to shooting a Nikon 105mm on a D7000.
The NEX series would then have 30, 50 and 100mm macro options and the FE line would just have 100mm. (or the others in crop mode).

there have been loads. 90-100mm seems to be the consensus. I'd be happy with either at the moment.

So how would the 90mm FE macro go on a NEX7, equivalent to 135? OSS good?

Yes, but it says I think March 2015 and we know how that went with the Zeiss. So maybe Christmas 2016 for real.
Canon 7d, Nauticam, Lots of glass, Olympus OMD-EM5, Nauticam, 60 macro, 45 macro, 8 mm fisheye, Inon, S&S, Athena Strobes plus lots of fiddly bits.

I have 30mm macro lens and I would say it is not the best one for macro, because very short focusing distance. For corals or stones it is ok, but for living creatures not so nice,
My colleagues get nice results with 50mm lens and additional wet macro lenses. The same 1:1 factor is possible to get at longer distance.
I just saw that the extension tubes will increase the focusing distance and some Nex users are satisfied with this solution.
so I am just interested if this will work underwater, and maybe the combination of extension tubes and wet lenses will offer the magnification like 2:1
I know that Canon 100mm f2,8L macro lens with metabones can be better solution, but I am trying to work with what I have, without increasing the price of my setup by factor 2x

I have one time mistakenly took 50 f1.8 as the 30 macro and used it with Subsee 10+
The results were stunning
Macro lens options for e mount cameras include
50mm f2.8 Touit
Sony 90 mm f2.8 G
Forgot to mention, I also have
1. add on dry close up lenses with 49mm, 67mm and 77 mm threads
2. Kenko close up extension tubes for Nex
3 A number of wet close up lenses
