FWIW, I concur on the virtues of the 90mm Macro. Granted, my experience
with it is rather brief. Bought it (new) yesterday with a 3Ti body (also
new) and made the first prints this evening, but the results are very
satisfying. With this lens the butterflies stays put long enough to get
the pictures I want. Also, this lens has enough inertia to stabilise even
relatively long exposures.
