Don't you have enough Macros already? From memory, you have the Voigtlander 125 and the VS1 105.

Not all the macro are the same. This pentax 35 macro seems fun to own for still life photography where the smaller subjects can be focused closer to the camera producing wonderful bokeh to compliment it.

It is something I am trying to find in Taipei if it is in stock.
