I would prefer a lens of 100mm or bigger.

$130 is a tall order for a 100mm macro.

I picked up a 50mm Minolta AF macro for around $70. It's a very good lens, small, and can be used as a standard prime lens (has pretty good-looking bokeh). A very versatile lens.

For insects etc., a 100mm would be preferable. I have the 100mm Minolta AF macro, which is also a super sharp lens (but suffers from some LOCA). I recall I paid over $200 for this though, so it's probably over your budget.
