Need help choosing my next lens!!

I'm a pretty fresh, new pentaxian and photographer. I bought my first camera this summerand, a K20D with 16-45, 3 months later I upgraded to a 16-50. I am very happy with this lens, but I want something more. In april I'm travelling to Israel and I wanna try and take some nice photos there. I have been looking on a macro lens, specifically the Sigma 180mm/3.5, the Pentax 10-17 fish-eye and the Sigma 70-200/pentax 50-135.

What to choose? Are there any other good alternatives? Will I save money by buying it in Israel?

Damn Brit

From your list, the Sigma 70-200 or the P DA 50-135 will probably be most useful to you (the 50-135 has the advantage of being weather sealed).

Being a macro fiend I would choose the Sigma 180mm, but for practical purposes the DA* would probably be better and is a superb lens.
