The combination of the 24mp of the Sony a6000 and the clarity and close focus ability of the Sony-Zeiss 24 1.8 make for a surprisingly reasonable combo for macro.

This photo would have been made better with a smaller lens opening and the use of flash. As it is, the focus is a touch off and there may be some camera shake. Macro-photography is a minimal depth of field game where F stops between 16 and 32 are almost a must.

I think it looks pretty good for a 24mm lens. I too at times shoot macro with a 24mm. However, a flash and a high shutter speed really helps to reduce somewhat blurred images due to camera shake and that of releasing the shutter with your finger and helps to produce a sharper image, a smaller f/stop helps also but sometimes that can be subjective. Selective focusing is what you want though, put that which is of most importance in focus, let depth of field take care of the rest.
