I also recommend the 55-300 and I second the concern of a 50 being too short for general macro. I'd forget about that one and get a cheap Raynox DCR-150 instead, which works really well with long lenses like the 55-300, at least until you've figured out whether you're just a casual macro shooter or want to get serious about it. The money you've saved I'd invest in a manual fast fifty, e.g. the Pentax-A or -M 50/1.7, because a fast lens is something I'd definitely be missing sooner rather than later with that lens line-up.
I agree.
