Time to get a nice tripod, and maybe get into lighting too. Especially once you have that macro lens.
I had been shopping for a macro and decided that I do macro so seldom that it's cheaper and easier to just get a Canon G12 which has a macro mode and does it pretty dang good. Might be funner that way ;)
