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. ;)

I use my Sigma 105mm Macro most, I also really like using my "Nifty Fifty" with extension tubes.

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 use the Sigma 150mm, Sigma 105mm, as well as Kenko ETs, Macro Bellows + Rail combined with some older M42 mount lenses.

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

Melvyn takes his great shots with the Tamron 90 - must be more to vote.

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!
