Actually, the dxomark article that gives these inexpensive lenses such high ratings is specifically about the Sony A7 II, but they are not Sony brand lenses. They are aftermarket brands like Tamron, Samyang, Sigma, etc. Maybe I should want Sony lenses, I don't know, but I did own a nice Tamron wide angle lens a while back for a Canon Rebel and I was very happy with it. It seemed to deliver a lot of bang for the buck and I had no problems with it. As suggested, I'd always read that too, Canon is overall the best brand for macro. And, that is what I may have to decide also, which is more important to me. I said I'd be using the camera for buildings and landscapes for business but the truth is, I like taking landscape photos a lot too just for fun, not just macros. I will go to the store and check them out as suggested, but the Sony brand 90mm macro has a really high dxomark rating of 40, and I could buy it with an extender, and one of the highly rated aftermarket wide angle lenses. It sounds like the best of both worlds to me, without opening up my budget to the extreme--looking at the overall situation in terms of lens quality and costs.
