I have been using the Sonie 90mm macro and I really like the handling. With the
90 macro E mount, I can auto focus and quickly switch to manual by pushing the
focus ring forward, or pull back for auto focus. Yes expensive, but I remember
how much cranking the OM 90mm macro focus took. E 90 handles well.
