These lenses are totally unsuitable for insect macro because the short focal length forces one to be far too close to the subjects which will likely have flown away, bitten you or stung you.

In addition, the lack of working space can make it difficult to illuminate the creatures properly.

The 40mm macro and the Tokina 35mm macro are awesome lenses, very small, very sharp and very useful as genera photography lenses, that happen also to be macro lenses .... thats the way to think about these lenses.

Both have a great price I think.

Remember, our cameras have plenty of megapixels, so you can always crop the photos, people tend to forget that once you take the photo with the camera, is not set in stone, you can crop easily.
