Would a 100mm Macro be best for me?

I bought the "old" 100mm Macro when I bought my first DSLR setup back in '06, and have been quite happy with it. It's not one of my most-used lenses, but still it's faithful for macro and other close-up work!

I've had the EF 50mm f/2.5 "Compact" Macro (1/2-size without an adapter) and the EF-S 60mm Macro, and although they are both nice lenses with good Image Quality I still stuck with the 100.

If I use a ring flash, would that get rid of the shadows?

Well you can use flash for fill in of shadows from the main light, but in this scenario you are blocking your main light (the sun), so the flash will probably become your main light.

Btw ring flash has its own issues. Mostly flat light and ring shaped high lights.
