    Olympus cameras have very good macro options. It was one of my main priorities in shopping for my camera.

    Go with Olympus, Nikon, or Canon digital cameras. I know your main worry is the price, and sadly you'll pay big bucks if you want a decent camera.

    I have the Olympus C-770 UZ if you'd like some background on it. It runs from about $500-$600 (when i first got it, retail in the local shop was about $800)

    Prices are coming down on film cameras, now that digital is really taking over..a new Canon Rebel (film rebel) with 28-80 zoom can be had for under $200!
    thats a great deal!

    True. Dedicated macro filters always work best though.

    man am i dying for a canon 20d...
