I think I am going to try a DIY macro. I got my hands on an old 35-105mm MACRO 1:3.2-4 Vivitar lens. For $50 I will be able to get a working lens. From there I can play around until I can afford a true Canon macro lens. This will be the better move considering the amount of hours I will be working given the current economic slump.

I thank everyone for their input. Happy bug hunting.

Oh and another think. Can a 100mm prime be used to make a macro? It is another lens I found for really cheap. Comes with manual aperture and focus. Perhaps I can reverse mount the 35-105 to it. That will yield almost a 3:1 magnification.
