Sigma 610 DG-ST with diffuser-softbox (but I prefer natural light);
Optionally - extension tubes (65mm) for higher magnification than 1:1 and Kenko 1.4x extender;
NOTE - some shots I took with reversed Exakta 24mm f/2.8 lens (there will be info about this under the photos). It's cheap method for high magnification macro (with only one or two extension tubes).

Macro scale from 1:3 to about 4:1 (first photo is in 1:1 and it's dragonfly called Migrant Hawker. It is one from my first photos which I took with Canon 60mm lens and mounted flash without any diffuser):
