Re: what is your purpose?

remembering that people with problems tell others about them while those without tend not to say anything, the majority of complaints about Sigma are to do with focussing. For macro work you'll end up manually focusing much if not all the time, as autofocus will tend not to choose quite the point you want. With that in mind I wouldn't be too worried. Apart from that, they're all great lenses and I doubt you'll be disappointed by any of them. I have the Sigma 150 and am very happy with it and often add a Sigma 1.4 convertor for insects (with a monopd for some added stability). Its a very solid feeling lens and the manual focus is easy and pleasant to use.

As to working distance- have a look before you rule out the Canon 100mm lenses. It might be a closer run thing than you would suspect.
