Macro Lense suggestions?

Hey gang,

I am looking for some recommendations for a Macro lens to use on my D90. It seems that a 1:1 macro mode is ideal and I have started my research on other sites but would like to hear from you guys on what you prefer/have had success with.

As always, I'd love to see your examples and Thanks!

I assume you want to stay with Nikkor and there are many options. It comes down to budget and lens features. Here's a link to Nikon USA's macro lens page.

I have the Carl Zeiss Makro Planar 100mm f/2 and it is mindblowing. They make them with Nikon mount too.
