It sounds like you want the Canon, and the other options are compromises.

Is the "macro" measurement the minimum focusing distance? Or the distance to get 1:1?

What kinds of objects or creatures are you shooting? You may find the Canon is perfect . That looks like your only negative.

At 1cm you'd have a shadow on whatever object you were shooting anyway. I don't see that as a bonus at all.

I want to get a macro lens for a dslr. But I don't want a 40mm lens because I'd have to be so close. I am hoping to get something higher so I can have some distance.

Wait for the Canon! It looks like a great machine
