    i'll rarely use it, so spending $500 on the 100mm 2.8 from Canon is a bit overkill.

    are there any others that aren't too expensive that take good macro shots?

    Welllll shit. I was going to say 100/2.8 :o Its the only one Ive used and liked. FWIW, Ive used the Canon 50mm macro, Sigma 150/2.8 and the Canon 100/2.8

    I got my 100mm macro used for $390 a few months back and it was in pretty much perfect condition. Try searching the FM and POTN boards, they pop up pretty often.

    You will like it and you will use it a lot.
