May I suggest looking a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 MF AI lens with a PN-11 extension tube. Yes, it is old school, but the image quality from these old lenses is remarkable, even by the standards of modern glass. Additionally, you can buy these on Ebay for pretty good prices.  Yes, the secret is out on these and everyone know it. So, prices are higher then they would ordinarily be.  But if you search, you can fine them at reasonable prices.
