Are you after a prime lens? If not the Pentax SMC-A 35-105 3.5 is a great lens if you don't mind the 3.5 and it's called a "stack of primes" for good reason.
I second that recommendation! While it states it has a macro function I would call it more of a close focusing function. It's easily one of my most used lenses.

I agree it's more of a close focus. I was hoping that it would replace my true 1:1 macro lenses but I guess you can't have everything. Otherwise still a wonderful lens.
