Are there any compact macro (or pseudo-macro) primes out there?

I know there's the 50mm/2.8, but I don't necessarily need a full macro magnification, and I know often there are other lenses that can be 0.25x or even up to 0.5x out there which don't really get advertised as 'macro'.

I do a lot of close up product shots, so close focusing is often needed, but 1:1 isn't necessarily needed.

The 90mm macro is very big and heavy (and expensive) for my purposes really.

Just thought I'd ask the question, I know sometimes there's a few oddball picks which work really well in niches like this.
