Welcome to the forum. You'd have an advantage by getting a 105mm Macro and I would suggest the sigma.

Hello and welcome to the Forums.
I use the Tamron 90 . If you want to see what a 105 Sigma is capable of in the right hands check out Eaglem's photos

Welcome to the forum.

I don't know about the value side of things, but I picked up a SMC Pentax-A 50mm F2.8 Macro secondhand in the Summer of this year and have been very pleased with the results, so much so this lens is now named my “Femme Fatale”.
