For general use, portarait use, AND macro - I'm surprised nobody has yet suggested the Tamron SP90mm Macro?

Great lens!
Agree, but this thread is dedicated to a different family of macro lenses.

I want to hear from Jay's opinion and that of others. Now that I have Vivitar 100mm f/2.8 by Kiron , what do you think about my prospect in trading in my Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Ex DG macro. Do you find any evidence with PF/CA in your Lester? What about other owners with Lester's variants? It is one gripe that I have on the Lester besides the ridiculously long focus throw which takes me months to get used to. What are your thoughts on the negatives on Lester as well as its variants as in Vivitar 100mm f/2.8 or the Vivitar S1 105mm f/2.8.

Another Lester shot, a ~5-6mm long jumping spider. 50% crop, onboard flash.

Camera: PENTAX K20D
Exposure Time: 0.0055s (1/180)
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 250

1. I need a more powerful flash
2. I need to clean my sensor
