Could be, but if it's a true macro lens (1:1 magnification), you'd have to be insanely close to the subject to get there with a 28mm lens. Not sure how much he wants for it, but given that you can get far more useful 100mm macro lenses for around $100, and also high quality closeup lenses like the Raynox 150 for any other telephoto lens you have have (or buy just for the occasion) for even less, a 28mm macro would *not* something I'd be considering.
