Lens Suggestions

Hello Pentaxians!

After a couple years of shooting, I am finally ready to expand my selection of lenses, and am hoping to get both a macro lens and a fast lens for some astrophotography. I have done my research and have found the PENTAX-DA★ 16-50mm F2.8 (PENTAX RICOH IMAGING CANADA INC. | smc PENTAX-DA★ 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL[IF] SDM) for some star shots/general shooting, and the PENTAX-D FA Macro 100mm (F2.8http://pentax.ca/en/accessories/lenses/d_fa/dfa_100/index.php) for when I want to get closer up. Are these lenses good quality/well priced options? Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
