LoL any macro lens is great! Even the Cosina 100mm f3.5!

Remember that macro lenses have a pretty narrow range of uses in photography. I know they commonly double for portraiture among other things but how many times do you really high magnification?

Pick one that fits your budget but don't go all out!

I have to disagree. I use my tamron for many different shots. Short tele, protraits, and close up/macro (there is a difference between the two) As far as I'm concerned my tamron 90 is the most versitile prime I have in my bag.
Here are a few non macro samples:

1 sec @ f32


1/500 @ f5.6


1/180 @ f4.0


1/90 @f2.8


NaCl(it's not just for close ups ya know)H2O

I am finding I am enjoying the Tamron 90mm for other than macro photography ... used it at my niece's 1st B'day yesterday ... and boy was it nice to use outside and inside (long,large room) as well.
