I saw that Canon 50mm. It only magnifies down to 1:2. If you want it to go to 1:1 you'll need the Canon extender which costs as much as the lens itself. That's why I think people should just jump to the 100mm, which does go down to 1:1.
Or, Sigma (if you have to) makes a nice 50mm that does 1:1, and those are fairly cheaper. I was considering that one too.
