[D7000] Out of these 4 macro lenses, which one is THE best?

Hello folks!

It's time I get a macro lens to fulfil the hole in my d7000's set. To make clear, I dont want to double it as a portrait lens, already got that covered.

I've "narrowed" it down to these 4 here:

tamron 60mm 2.0. WD ~10mm

tamron 90mm 2.8. WD ~10mm

tokina 100mm 2.8. WD ~11mm

nikon 85mm 3.5 WD ~11mm

As you can see, they all have about the same working distance. I'm an amateur photographer so Im having a hard time deciding which one to pick.

As I understood the composition will be exactly the same with all of them. Confusing! I also heard something about extending barrel, but I couldnt figure it out what that means cause they are all primes right?

However, I know that the focus shouldnt be loud so it wont scare the subject and that manual focus override is very appreciated. I guess weight is sort of important too, no one likes to carry more weight, but that's secondary.

I''d be glad if you guys could enlighten me!
