This one is after the EF-s 60mm: http://sigmaphoto.com/lenses/lenses_...mp;navigator=5
(... but works on a full-frame too)

looks like it would be quite similar. If you're looking for something different, look at the assortment in the 99-100-105mm range of Macros. Then decide on the EX 150mm macro as it's the best one. EX is forExcellent. The L glass junkies throw coniption fits when you praise fine Sigma Glass. The L junks have a defence mechanism to protect their $$ inflated egos. When EX Glass becomes too well talked about, their defences begin to crumble they lose the ability to speak coherently. Soon they start blurting outirrelevant cliches

It's funny sometimes, for a while anyway, but usually becomes quite sad when they start to realize the only pride they had in ther lives was their L Glass bubble.

Fortunately for the L glass junkies, they have a very short attentions span and that protective L glass bubble will be back in place tomorrow.:|

Haha - L is best.

You're just too poor or stingy to afford it.

I'd go for the Canon 100 F2.8 USM Macro prime, it's about the same price as the 60 mm and it's full frame. It also focuses very fast, making it suitable as an multi-purpose lens.Just as good or better than an EX or L ;-)

That's an interesting concept: make a lens more suitable for an APCs sensor but keep it FF. If they added HSM, it would of been really interesting:sad:

Maybe Canon should try this concept on their L's...

Not this "L" glass junkie. Even if Sigma made "fine" glass I wouldn't get off subject to put-down those that feel differently.
