I was thinking about getting the Sigma 50mm macro, which has a 1:1 magnification (rather than the Sigma 105mm, which is $100 more expensive) but people suggested that if you're doing macro of insects or other things that would be spooked, you'd have to be too close to get the 1:1 magnification, and that if you're shooting near 1:1 at 50mm, you might often find yourself casting shadows on your subject because of the close distance. So I'm saving my money for now and waiting for the 105mm.
