Macro lens question

My vote is for the 60 / 2.8 macro.

Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated.

The only flaw with this lens is that it has no AF limiter (why not, Canon?). I didn't use it for portraits, much, since the more shallow DOF of the 85 / 1.8 was much more my style.

Here's a rather detailed test I did with the lens:

Anyway, how about some pics?
