I see a lot of folks using the Canon 100 2.8 Macro for both macro and potraits, personally I find it a bit long for potraits. When I was playing in the Macro world I found longer=better. As stated above you may need to get so close that whatever you are trying to shoot will scurry off. I didnt try using one lens for both applications but focused on a good Macro lens. The Canon 180L Macro is the best Macro lens I used but pricey and not very fast in the AF dept, not that anyone should depend on AF for macro work anyhow. I tried the 100 2.8 but it seemed to fall short.
