    Hello,

    I am new to this forum but I have been lurking around for a while. I need some advice on choosing a camera along with the lens. I use to have a D80 along with the kit lens but I had to sell it due financial problems. Now I am ready to purchase another but I need help. My limit $2000, I have two different combinations that I am stuck between. The first combinations includes the following

    Canon Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Autofocus Lens

    and
    A Canon Rebel XTI
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/457506-REG/Canon_1236B002_EOS_Digital_Rebel_XTi.html


    The second is
    Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Auto FOcus Macro Lens
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16830998385
    and a
    Canon EOS 40D
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16830120228


    I really want to do macro photography but I would rater have the telephoto lens for right now. I look at both of these combos and cant decide because they both sound good. Can I get some opinions please.

    Thanks in advance
