The 90mm f2.5 Tamron SP macro adapatall2 lens ususally
sells for under $200 on ebay and is a great lens in itself,
especially at that price.

The 105mm Series 1 Macro is the same as the Kiron 105mm macro and should
sell for the same price (from what I've seen around $300).

Another higher priced option that people seem to speak highly of is the
Tamron SP 90mm macro.
