Still, it might be fun to play around with while I look for a deal on a used nice lens. It seems the lenses everyone recommends are more in my budget when they are used.
Don't be afraid to buy used. You can go with someone on ebay who has very good feedback or from a regular poster at POTN (Canon Photograpy Forum) if you want to stay within $300. The 60mm is in that range and is a true macro lens.
