New camera......


Hey all,

I'm buying a new camera and I've got up to about $2500, maybe a bit more, to spend on it. I need recommendations as to what is the top dog camera for that kind of money. I'm primarily going to use this for taking pictures of plants. Would you recommend a seperate macro lens?

Thanks,

Del

Do you have any existing 35mm lenses?

I don't know the latest prices, but I would look into Canon (5D), Nikon and Fuji (S3 Pro). See what resolution you need (higher if you want to print/publish your pictures) and how much you get for the money. After choosing your top contenters, read reviews (especially negative ones). Try them out if possible, see how you like the buttons and menus etc.
