I am looking at trying to take close ups of some of the corals and fish in my reef tank, but am struggling with the lenses I have currently.

Best images are from my 70-300L, but I have to be miles from the tank for it to focus. My 50f1.8 and 85f1.8 aren't a great deal better, so was thinking about investing in a dedicated marco lens for this sort of work.

But what would be a good fit and reasonable lens for the 60D. Was thinking the 100mm macro, but that is 160mm on my camera, was hoping for something shorter.

Any advice??
