The Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 1:1 Di Macro lens is THE portrait macro lens, and right now in the USA, it's got a 6 year warranty and a $50.00 mail-in rebate.  It's a wickedly good lens, and you won't be disappointed with the results either.  I have one (as well as a Delta DRF-14 S ringflash for macro and portrait use), and the combo is wicked!

Check out the specs and other data, though do shop around for best price if buying new.  The ring flash is a re-branded Marumi, and is available from Foto-Tip (Poland) via evilBay (free Worldwide shipping).  See item: 350311920117

What camera are you using the ringflash with?  I see reviews of one of the clones on the Amazon UK site saying it doesn't work with either the A580 or any of the SLT cameras.
