Well, all my search into 180/2.8 lenses for close work, led me to an old (1990 design) Sigma APO Macro 180/2.8 AF with huge 82ø and 10 aperture blades!
Far heavier than intended,(1.5KG!) but it is for a specialised purpose, and the price was good at £225, with two tiny specs of fungus behind the front optic, which I hope will be easy to clear.
Could only find 3 short reviews, (Dyxum) but all excellent.
In Sony A mount, so a manual aperture change adapter required, to E mount, (thankfully it has the necessary aperture lever), and I only intend to focus manually, so I don't need an expensive LA-EA3 adapter.
Quite a saving on the modern OS version which is well over 3x that price, even "used", though of course it also focusses to 1:1, this one to 2:1, which is fine.
