From a Tokina 35mm f2.8 DX macro to a Canon 180mm f3.5 L USM, they all do the same (upto 1:1 macro, so a 22mm wide subject will fill the width of the image).

Which focal length will suit you best is for you to decide, the longer lenses have a more narrow field of view than the shorter focal lengths.

Probably a 50mm (Sigma 50mm f2.8 macro) or 60mm (Tamron 60mm f2 Di II macro or Canon EF-S 60mm f2.8 USM macro) are a better idea than the 100mm because they will give the objects a bit more "natural" looking perspective.

Which DSLR you choose with it is up to you. There will not tbe big differences.

Of course, for tripod work IS does nothing.

Thanks. I was told the 100mm would get me out from the subject a few inches more than a 60mm where it will be easier to work and not be in the way of lighting. My average subject is only .5 - 1.0" in diameter. I hadn't heard any cons against the 100mm until now.
