Sadly the 105mm lens is a little bit to long, as a 157mm lens its very flat, in years gone by in 35 mm terms some liked the 85mm lens as it gives a more rounded image, some liked the 105 mm lens as it was a little flatter.

But 157 mm is far to long, yes I would agree that it is excellent, but all macro lenses are very flat. Go for a 50mm f1.8 or f1.4
