Not sure why you would want the the 200 micro for portrait and people stuff or a family wedding for that matter. Not that you couldn't use it for those purposes, but not quite what that lens is intended for.

Depending on your goals are, the 300 with tubes and/or Canon 500D is very good IMHO. These are all handheld (with SB800).

The 500D for $130 or so really lets you do Macro with the 300 AFS f4. The fly I think was with the TCE1.4 also.

Not as easy to shoot with as my Tamron 90 or even the 80-200 f2.8 2ring, but it can do a very nice job of it. Big benefit is the working distance, about 10" or so from subject.
