I own the Canon 100 non IS, the Tamaron 180 , and the Canon MPE-65 (purchased in that order). When I bought the Tamaron I was actually looking at the Canon 180 and was told to look at the Tamaron. I love the Tamaron, it is a sharp lens, however it is very slow to focus. I thought that that would not be a problem for macro and for lots of it it is not! Yesterday I did a shoot with venomous snakes and it was a challenge to use the 180, not impossible and I got some great shots but it was a challenge! All in all I LOVE the 180, for 1/2 the price of the Canon I will take it all day long!
I have a post that I just put up "Herps ~ Up Close and Personal" that has a few shots done with the Tamaron 180 f/3.5
