compare Canon 100mm IS Macro with Canon 180mm L macro?

I had the 180.  Loved it.  But big and wanted to reduce weight load.

But with the 100mm macro, yes, lighter, but I miss the distance possible with the 180.

I use a geared tripod with 5DIV which is overkill for us a small rig.

Are these merely conveniences?  What do you use and is it your go-to macro?
