Don't get confused and think a shorter macro lens has greater DOF. It doesn't. DOF is related to image magnification not focal length.

It doesn't, DoF is almost the same, even perhaps a few percent thinner (pupilliary magnification). But but it does seriously visually make more impression of depth. Absolute background blur at a certain distance from the focus plane is also practically the same. But relative background blur decreases at shorter FL.
