    I like my Canon PowerShot G2 with Macro lens adapter.

    Don't believe that short distances should give you good macro results. Almost always "super macro" at distances like 2cm is only aviable at wideangle setting and will give you horrible distortions.
    Macro should always be able at the tele-setting !
    Long distance gives you better perspektive, less distortion, a better working distance and less shadows from your own lens.

    There are some good English revies sites :

    takes you some days to go through the stuff ;-)

    Olympus also makes some good ca,ares with nice macro and good velua for your money.
    Miolta has as a camera with 28(!)-200mm zoom.
    Fuji's S602z is an excellent all around camera with goof macro.

    they have an interetsing new development, the new 4th generation Super CCD Sensor SR.... It's not aviable now bit it sounds very inetresting, especially for plant fotography.

    Thanks, all

    I take it that 3 or 4 times zoom, and 2 million pixels plus is what I need.

    Talk to me if I'm wrong.

    Very best regards to all.

    I use an Olympus D550 Zoom with 3MP. It seems to serve it's purpose, but I still miss my 35mm SLRs.

    Dyflam, that is an incredible picture. I'm betting that that is a Tiger Swallowtail catapillar. Can't decide what is more striking, the insect or the blossoms.

    It must really look great at high resolution.

    I have the Fuji 2650 (known as A204 in Europe) shown on the first page of the Imaging Resource website. Here's a sample:

    alandallas,
    It is a Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) larvae feeding on Asclepia sp. possibly Asclepias tuberosa.

    As you can probably tell I am a fan of the Monarch butterfly. I've raised them since I was about 7 y.o.
