Tokina AT-X 100 PRO D AF 100mm f/2.8
Going to spark up an archive of this bad boy. Just got it in today and I am very very impressed.
Build quality is second to none. Better than my current or previous Sigmas, better than all the black Canon L's I have or have had.
AF speed is pretty good for a macro. It's not Canon 100mm macro USM speed, or even 50mm 1.4 speed but I think it could keep up with ring USM with the focus limiter switch on.
Lens is recessed nicely so that you don't even need the included hood. It uses a 55mm filter size, how cheap are those? So cheap, I can use my Vivitar CPL from my Canon F-1.
Focus accuracy is perfect.
I shot f2.8, f4, f5.6, and f8 at ISO 400 in RAW+L and they look beautiful! Eh, it was a crappy Balance Bar wrapper at about 1:1 but still.
More to come, I just can't post pics at work. But I'll certainly take some more tonight and post 'em up!

Edit***Turns out my copy front focuses at distance (20ft +) and beyond. Great build, sharp macro, exchanged for a different based on Tokina Repairs advice.

I had one but sold it b/c it's too long on a cropped sensor for my needs.
Otherwise, a great lens.

Good to hear, Mike. Great to have top-grade optics with build to match and all at a reasonable price! :)

Yeah the build and resolution really is incredible. I've got a four day weekend coming up and I'll have to grab some more macro shots.

Sounds like a good one, and according to tests on Photozone.de it actually measures higher in terms of resolution that a Sigma 105mm macro. However I did see a sample photo demonstrating fairly severe CA. Do you find this to be the case?

You know there's some CA in the pic of my backyard around the white flowers. Honestly though I haven't shot it enough or in the right conditions to really push the CA. I did shoot a jasmine flower and there was a bit of CA, but it's really not that bad.

Hmmm, I can't really keep the CA in the shots. Processing the files from RAW to JPEG really handles it, heck pretty much eliminates it. Not a CA example but a decent shot nonetheless.
