Well, if you are going to include photos from another lens by accident, the 50 mm is not a bad choice. I have never used the Sigma line of lenses, including the 105 mm, but it certainly looks to do a fine job with close ups.

The Sigma 105 is a decent lens and very fun to use because of mechanical focusing and long focal length, but IQ isn't anywhere near Zuiko lenses. It's not very sharp, even at f/8, and has issues with both micro and macro contrast. Flare resistance is almost non-existent. The 150 is supposedly better, but I haven't had the chance to try it.
