^^ Both the 105mm and 150mm lenses are internal focus designs like the Canon 100mm L lens. So the focal length will decrease towards macro ranges but the length of both lenses wont change.

Not sure what is the actual focal length at 1:1 distances but I read somewhere that it becomes something like 70mm for the Canon 100mm lens.

Not sure if the prices will drop as the MSRP of the 150mm is $1600.
