I am looking into a "real" macro lens with 1:1 capabilites without additional extension. yeah, yeah i know the nikkor 200mm micro rocks, but i simply dont have the cash to throw into a piece like that.

im trying to decide between a 60mm micro nikkor, a 90 mm tamron macro. i know nikon will most likely be higher quality, but the added focal distance appeals to me with the tamron. i could always fo the 105mm nikon lens route as well, that in my opinion is the best option, but at around 700$, i wouldnt be using it enough to really get my money's worth, and with tamron at half the price, comparable (90 as opposed to 105) focal, its pempting because i tend to like the feel of tamron lenses and have never ever noticed a picture qality difference with tamron lenses. anyone have either of these lenses or any insight that would help me?

thx a ton
