>Neil, I opted for a 5 Megapixel Nikon Coolpix, mostly because of the

The panasonic only goes to 5cm, is that close enough? With the EOS50
and 100 macro, I never go closer than 20cm, but I guess thats different.

The Panasonic gets rave reviews, and is said to be better than older 
digi-cams. But they used to give Merlin kits rave reviews too!

>If you want, Neil, I can send you a medium-quality model shot of 1 Meg

Please do!

I'm hoping they'll barge in!
