Cyber Monday and Just general macro shot camera searching

Well today is cyber monday, was wondering if anyone saw any deals on digital cameras that are awesome for Macro shots. I'm mainly looking to buy a camera that will take good beginner macro shots of shrimp. Anyone know of anything out there on sale today or is a good starter. I'm looking for something under $400.

You just go out and purchase a standard Canon Rebel TI body (nice beginner camera) and then just purchase a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens. I use this lens at work all the time and it is amazing. Don't know what I would do without it.

You won't be able to find a camera and macro lens as a kit. You'll have to buy the body with most likely a kit lens and have to purchase the lens separately.

For shrimps you will need external flash if you don't have 4WPG lighting.
Otherwise canon have nice P&S 300-400 range.Best is to have macro range from 1cm.
