I'm a huge fan of macro lens. I want this and also Tamron 90mm.

Incredible sharpness, even wide open.  Handy filter rotation feature where you can rotate it and still have lens hood attached.  Solid, well built, but a bit slow during AF where it can tend to hunt a lot.  I love this focal length for macro, as you can stay further away from any living things you photograph that would scare easily with a shorter lens.
