I use Canon 100 and Canon 180. I also recently acquired the newly released Nikon 105 VR and can't wait to try out the VR (IS equivalent). :)

EDIT: I'm now using Canon 180L and Canon MP-E65. ;)

looking at your gallery it clearly does the business. UK price is a touch more than the Tamron 90 & Sigma 105 so one would expect it to compete in this company.

I have the 60mm, two Canon tubes and the 500D. I want to buy another macro lens, but just can't decide which one to go for.

Since I'm in limbo between the Tamron 90mm and the Sigma 150 I voted for both.

I'm not surprised,
but I am surprised only 1 person (at this point) uses the Tamron 90mm

This poll is helping me make my macro choice

You have the 60 which is light and ideal for the smaller bugs where a heavier lens might be hard to avoid shake without use of a tripod. Now you should go for a 150/180 for the timid bugs, like most Dragonflies, that you cant easily approach for close ups with the 60.

None of the above - Kenko extension tubes and 50mm lens ;) If I ever get my hands on a Sigma 150mm macro...I'll vote for that ;)

I use the EF-S 60mm F2.8 USM. It has so far proven to be razor sharp, although I haven't spent a lot of time with it. Also great as a portrait lens!
