I like the idea of the 40 micro for size which gives an equivalent of 108mm. However the 60 will give a greater subject distance at a given magnification. I have an old Cosina 100 AF macro that makes great images, but manual focus of course. I have eyeballed the 85 micro also because it is reasonable in cost and would be a good fit with my DSLR gear. It's slower at f3.5 but I don't see this as a deficit for macro work.
