Not sure about sony/minolta lens, but you could get sigma 105mm or tamron 90mm for sony mount. I can't see sigma 150mm for sony mount though, if not it would be my choice.
As it stands, both sigma 105 and tamron 90 are good.

Sony do a number of their own macro lenses too and old minolta ones sometimes appear on ebay too. If you check out:
they have details and links to reviews for 31 macro lenses you could use old and new - they are often my first port of call for info on minolta/sony stuff.
I've got the old Tamron 90mm which is excellent and I've been considering the Sigma 70mm macro which has been getting great reviews
