I don't shoot any macro myself; but according to a few of my coworkers who shoot a lot of macros, the longer focal lengths tend to be better for the beginners because the working distance from the lens to the subject is bigger and thus easier to deal with. For that reason, the 105mm might be a better option; but it is at a much bigger price tag.
