Both the canon 50mm and 60mm macro's are cheaper on amazon by $50 bucks or so.
If you already own a fast prime you could spend $100 on canons 250D or 500D close up lens. It screws on your current lens like a filter would. If you want to go really cheap just turn your 50mm prime backwards and hold it over the sensor in place with your hand :p
