Clarifying Points

Note he used a flash for these shots so the 1/80 S shutter speed isn't relevant as the flash in producing an effective exposure on less than 1/1000 S.

How much of your shooting will be true macro in the 1:1 range?   It is the very close range where autofocus doesn't matter and steadiness isn't an issue ONLY when using flash or a tripod.

If you are using this as a close up (as opposed to macro) without flash or tripod than both auto focus and stabilization DO become important considerations.  Also consider general use as a 90mm lens in non-closeup/macro situations.
