What I wondered was why he wants a macro instead of a good wide-angle.

Thanks for the response. I don't necessarily want a macro lens.  In fact, I don't necessarily have any particular interest in macro photography.  The lenses that I mentioned in my initial post were just the types of lenses that were suggested as a set that would cover a broad set of possible shooting situations to start as a DSLR/interchangeable lens camera user.  It was just one person's opinion.

I see. Well, a good macro lens is a nice addition. I'm thinking about getting one, myself, soon. Meanwhile, I'm covered, from 16mm on up to 210mm with the three lenses I already have. Then there is my Fotodiox MD-NEX adapter, which lets me use my legacy Minolta lenses with the NEX.
