    Yes, that is one fantastic lens and the one reason I envy you Canon macro shooters. If I was a Canon shooter I would definitely have that lens.

    I shoot both a Canon and a Nikon (look in the signature) when I'm out-and-about looking for bugs :)

    Ive just started shooting Macro with the D7000 and a Sigma 28-300mm, a reverse ring and a 2X teleconverter. It gets from less than an inch to more than 3 feet away from the subject.

    Yeah, I noticed that earlier but for myself I don't want the extra expense of buying the Canon body strictly for that particular lens.

    But that lens is so worth it compared to what you have to rig up on the Nikon to get the same magnification...

    I like the first one best. Very nice, but initial impression is that it needs more lighting or something brighter in the background.

    Then again, I'm a complete newbie (I don't even own a DSLR yet), so take it for what it's worth.
