Re: cheaper macro lens instead of $1000 Nikon

You appear  to be shooting Nikon so, you might consider the 85mm Micro-Nikkor as well.  With the 1.5 crop factor for DX that puts you at about 130mm for a portrait perspective similar to the 135mm often used for this.  At the same time, it will give you the native 1:1 magnification for your eye reflection shots.
