Pentax FA 50mm f1.4 for Portrait & Macro ?

I bought the Pentax K100D plus the Sigma 70-300mm DG 'APO' and the Sigma 18-125mm F3.5-5.6 DC last Christmas,
now I want to add another lens to my collection.

I am interested in photographing birds, flowers, animals, bugs and people.

Bugs you need (with the Pentax FA 50mm f1.4 Lens) a reversing ring which will cost around $20 and you'll get 1:1 true macros.

Is this true, will I get good macro shots ?

What is a reversing ring ?

Pentax FA 50mm f1.4 Lens AU$349.00/quote] from Pentax FA 50mm f1.4 Lens | Camera-Warehouse
Looks like a good deal and a excellent lens if the macro is true and I can get a reversing ring.

Thanks for any advice, Rodney
