I have a good shop locally which is happy to let me try out lenses so I might give a few a go.
I know what you mean about the £800, but it's not just a macro lens, it's also a very good prime L series lens, so comes with an L series price. I'm now starting to use mine as much as a prime lens as a macro lens.
Good news about the local shop letting you try out lenses, you'll be able do a full evaluation of both, although I think you might have to start saving, once you've done some testing
