New K7 owner

So after 3 years of playing with a Sony A200 I decided I wanted to up my camera's durability and weatherproofing ... and quality...and well, the list is large So far I'm enjoying the camera and discovering the usages of a dedicated wide angle lens. I'm sporting the SMC Pentax DA 15mm F4 Limited. As my most enjoyable work with my Sony came from Landscapes and Macro photography I feel as though I haven't even skimmed the surface of how amazing this camera really is going to be. I'm looking at purchasing the Sigmas 70-200mm (not sure of the model off hand but its the fancy macro one) But I still want to dig around on the forums here to see what we have going on for used lenses and any suggestions for a favorite macro lenses that have weather proofing would be greatly appreciated

~Thanks in advance

The K-7 definitely won't disappoint, and neither will that little lens! Welcome
