Food photography pays some of my bills. I own a goodly selection of macro lenses, and by far my most used for this purpose is the 60mm AF-S. It's plenty sharp, has lovely optical characteristics and is short enough for the cramped spaces available for shooting in most restaurants.
I also own the 200mm AF - way too long for food; 85 PC - on paper, the ideal glass for this work, but in practice, too fiddly; 55 f2.8 ai-s - nice, but no benefit over the 60; 105 vr - very nice, but again, too long. I also sometimes use the 24-70 if I need more focal length flexibility.
The one lens I do lust after is the Zeiss 50 makro - never used it, but if it performs anywhere near as well as it reviews, then it should be a force to be reckoned with.
