I do not have sony 90mm macro lens .... it cost almost the same as the whole setup :P 


I attached 100mm Minolta macro lens with LE-EA1 adapter. This will fit to longest port made by acquapazza. You need only to chanage a bit the front element.

I used the port for  Sony A mount 100mm lens with additional adapter. 

And now when I compared it to Your setup then it looks like Sony A7 with 90mm macro lens is much smaller and compact than NEX.

The new 90mm sony lens is outstanding with performance but also with the price


So I bought old Minolta 100mm f2.8 maco lens and Sony LE-EA1 adapter. With that setup there is no AF but it is possible to control aperture. The price for used parts are around 250 Euro.


Now I can see difference to compare with 30mm macro lens.


First I did test with Inon lens UCL-330. That setup can give higher magnification but CA is significant. The focusing distance is abut 11cm


F14, ISO200, 1/60

And F2,8. ISO100, 1/60





Without close up glass, the lens work a bit better and distance to object is significantly longer.








and f16 but lower magnification

I tested macro setup in open water, I have some doubts but now I know that it is possible to take picture and adjust focus manually by moving camera
