Have you considered the Tamron equivalent. It too does macro. That's what I use. Here is a sample ...

I dont mean to hijack your thread, but what are your opinions on the Pentax 55-300 vs. the Sigma/Tamron 18-200 as an all purpose zoom lens?
The 55-300 isn't all-purpose at all - it's telephoto only.

With a very good close focusing ability, mind you.

Cheers, Mike.
