Taking into consideration price, what are the best macro lenses for not-to-serious photography? Price is a big factor for me.

And I know it is a subjective question. I do not mind subjective answers.

The most cost effective solution is to adapt a non-macro lens, see photo.stackexchange.com/questions/9341/… –  Matt Grum Jul 2 '12 at 8:33

The best would be to adapt a non macro lens, There are many ways to do this, lens reversal, extension tubes, etc... if you want to buy a macro lens, for a $500 price tag you can get the older 100mm f/2.8 you can read a review here, also for about the same price you can get the Sigma 70mm f/2.8, however, I would go with the Canon.
