Macro at $500, then you can go with Sigma 105. It's longer than all the choices mentioned here. Stack ext tube would not be good for bugs since you're forced to move closer + the light loss.
I would go for the same choice, in fact. Extension tube does not work on this focal length and not on a macro lens.

180mm is the best value for sure. Oops. You will enjoy the lens.

Yeah, but that lens is a beast. The A*200/4 macro seems like a tiny sister compared w/ the Sigma 180mm

jesus,
not sure you wold be interested but i have a phoenix 100/3.5 and a smc M50/4.
these are both 1:2 macros. the phoenix comes with a diopter so you can get to 1:1x but i don't have it.. this lens is in E++ condition. i can't find any where it shows any use.

the 50 smc is in great shape with very little brassing..

either one of these would give you inexpense macros so you can see if shooting macros is up your alley..

The SMC-M 50 f/4 macro is an incredible little lens - generally unheralded, and pretty inexpensive, but it remains the sharpest Pentax 50mm I've ever shot.
