For pure macro the most stunning lens is undoubtedly the specialised MPE-65...

Stunning convenience and usabilty, yes, but not necessarily stunning IQ compared to other lenses. Three years ago I posted a shot at about 1.5:1 from an EF 50/1.8 II on 65mm of tubes with a 250D, and another at about 5:1 from an old Pentax 50/1.7 reversed on a 55-250 @ 250, with equivalent shots from an MP-E 65. Only one person took up the challenge to guess which shots where which and did no better than chance, IOW, no-one could pick the MP-E shots. (Here's the thread, but the images aren't there any more.)
