Hey guys I'm not by all means a camera pro , I'm wondering what's a good camera that already comes with a 100mm 2.8 lens for macros that's under 400. I don't wanna spend more money for a 100mm lens.

I came across the canon sx 20is which has the 100mm f/2.8 lens on it alrdy but I think its a older camera and couldn't find one anywhere. Is there other cameras out there right now that already had the lens ?

Tnx for the help.

If you are looking for a camera to take coral pics, I recently bought this one, and am quite happy with it now. It can take pics underwater really close up, with up to an f2.0 aperture setting. The only negative I found was that it did not have a manual focus setting, although the auto focus does work really well.
Here is a link when I was figuring out the WB for LEDs.

And here are some other pics that I took with this camera.

Paid $329 for it.

The waterproof TX10 has a pretty okay macro

I think there's a newer model that's rendered this one so cheap.
It does pretty okay macro and HEY! waterproof!

I also bought one of these off kijiji for 300.00
it does a nice job

I doubt you'll find an all in one camera with a 100mm macro but there's some good options :)
