Furiously saving up for a Canon EOS 60D to replace the 1000D I'm using at the moment! Not that I've taken many CP photos this year...

That's my wish. I can't afford it and saving up will take me ages since I'm only 13. :tongue:
I use Canon EOS 550D

I use Nikon D90 with very basic lens 18-105mm :negative: I was saving for a better lens but the CP hobby is stronger than the photography hobby so... :D

I've got a Nikon D3000.
Even though it's hardly a pro camera, it's the most expensive (and by far the best) i've ever owned.

I'm happy with the results i get doing outdoor and scenic photography, although i haven't really bothered with CP photography until i get an extension tube.
A macro lens is out of the question for my budget, so could anyone please tell me if these would do the job for close-up plant phtography.....

If not, what would be better ?

@dreamfalcon - sorry for the late reply, but wow those shots are incredible!!

 

I either use my Nikon D5100 or the camera on my Sony Xperia SP to take photos. 

 

The Nikon has the highest resolution for the more crisper images, and of course the depth of field can be change to achieve those more professional looking shots (people compliment me on my photos, and while I appreciate their kind words, I still think that having a DSLR makes good photography a lot easier).

 

I use the Xperia when I don't have my Nikon on me, as well as when I want to take more vivid photos. 

 

The Nikon allows for shots like this:

But I tend to find that the Xperia can sometimes catch light better, such as this photo of the afternoon sunset, comparing both cameras:
