    A helpful site.
    can someone advise me please, which macro lens I should look to purchase to fit on my canon EOS 500, to photograph colembola, mites, onychiurinae, etc. (ie. to 3mm or so)

    Is there a digital camera out there yet that can achieve this?
    Thank you,
    My regards,
    Graham NZ.
