This is what I purchased after reading Ken Rockwell's review: Tokina at-X PRO M 100mm F2.8 D Macro Lens

The Tokina is a good choice. Enjoy!

When I wanted to start serious DSLR photography, my wife let me use a bag of pre-owned Canon gear, that she had bought pre-owned. (She had subsequently been issued a Nikon camera, by her employer, and had decided to become a dedicated Nikon DSLR shooter, so no longer needed the Canon equipment.)  Two significant items were in that bag of otherwise modest, entry-level equipment: A Tokina 100/2.8 AT-X Pro Macro lens, and a 580EX Speedlite, which was Canon’s top-tier hot-shoe-mount flash, in its day.

I credit that Tokina lens for awakening and enabling my early interest in close-range and macro photography. The built-in, sliding white bounce card, on the flash, was a tremendous help, too, at close range.

By accident of availability, I learned to use Canon and Nikon DSLRs at the same time. I love specific lenses made by both Canon and Nikon, too much to quit either system. Dabbling with Leica-M is fun, too. I am, certainly, not an expert.
