yep those arent cheap either.

I deal with optics ALOT at work and well you really cannot get much better glass out of asian then nikons quality.

Leica on the other hand well lets just say if you got an extra 2K laying around you can get a entry level camera from them.
I used to have a coolpix gettin close camera, came with a pelican case and gorilla pod. it used carl zeiss optiks and that was one of the clearest cameras I have ever owned or even looked thru.

I am not sure what optiks the DSLR uses but I am sure it ranks close if not better then nikons monarch series optiks.

If you can get a 50mm 1.8 for your Rebel, you'd be in good shape. I've taken some great pics with that lens. Cheap, too.

Nice pickyup. I have a Nikon D-100. I bought it new a few years ago. I also use a Sony Mavica which takes awesome picture and has a great macro setup. In lights for our tanks it's penetration in DSLR camera's it's all about lenses. Have fun you will love your camera. With lens it gets a little heavy.
Happy Reefing,

One of the things I remember from photography class as well as just farting around.....

....For close up focus see if your camera has a "macro" setting. This setting (or lens) if for taking real close up pics. An example would be if you see a picture of a single flower.

And some cameras have a super-macro, where it is similar to a weak microscope.

and then they have microscopes for the super close up shots
