    Both get good reviews, both f/2.8 USM, this will be my first macro lens, going on an XSi. $455 vs. $370 from Adorama.

    I'm conflicted.

    if you can swing the difference, i'd go with the 100. if you ever go full frame in the future, you won't have to sell the 60 to get the 100.

    if I couldn't swing it, it wouldn't be in the running ;) but yeah... i'm just considering tradeoffs in physical size, focal length, price, and future. I'll probably be with a crop sensor for a while, so i don't want to buy something for the reason i could still use it with a different body.

    I'm leaning towards 100 :wiggle:

    If you have the money get the 180, if not, shut up and get the 100.
