Last weekend I tried to do some macro using my 40mm pancake. Maybe it is not the best thing to do but it's the only one handy at the time.
While I was shooting, what I really noticed was that I could not go beyond the MFD of the subject (obviously :rolleyes. I wanted to get even closer than what the lens was offering. So as soon as I got home I started researching here and read LordV's macro photography write-up.
It seems like the general lens of choice is the 100mm macro. I can't afford the L so I probably go for the non-IS. Actually I can't afford anything at the moment since I just spent all my gear money on a new 7D.
This is my small collection. Is there anything here that I can use for macro photography?
