While in Seoul, I went to the main camera shop area of the city, and had a look for lenses that would be of interest.  I found a few examples of the EF 180L macro around at various ages and prices, and also had a look at the tamron 180 f/3.5 macro, which although it was very sharp, the focussing motor was pretty loud on it.  The price was a little more than the second hand 180L I bought in the end.  This was my first real shoot using it as a macro lens:

I do lot of macro. Glass is super sharp. Saw erratic behavior when I use 25mm extension tube(local made) under low light. It just focuses to something automatically even if it is set to manual mode.

I don't do a lot of macro either. Since these cameras have video functions, I'd thought I'd share my first ever macro with the Canon 5D Mark III, 70-200mm IS 2.8L, and Kenko extension tube. It is also appropriate for a Monday morning. The video is less than 1 minute long:

Arrived back in the Lake district again.  Short walk out and grabbed this shot of a fly enjoying some nectar from a buttercup

Used the 180 macro almost exclusively around Rydal

Had another look at the third shot as quite a lot of noise in the darkest area as I'd pushed the levels up a bit.  Selected the flower then inversed the selection to exclude it then reduced the exposure of the background by 4 stops to keep some colour in the left part of the shot

I like the first one because of the bokeh background. However, your last two shots show what I'm experiencing with my 60d (!) too and why the 5d3 at low iso has been criticized: The noise/dr at low iso is not very good, and if you raise shadows too much you're getting distracting pattern noise in the background. If the flower isn't moving and you're using a tripod, you'd better use hdr (exposure fusion) on this.
