i am looking for a camera with good close-up capabilities for taking pics of my orchids. i currently have an oly 5050 which does not give the detail i want and a k-m a200 that does not get close enough to the subject for good pics, imo.

i really like the k-m but need the macro capability. the canon pro 1 and nikon 8700 are essentially the same camera by different manufacturers. does anyone have any recommendations or additional info that might help me make up my mind?

my other option is buying a pentax *ist body for which i already have a sigma 28-80af macro lens and a tamron 75-300af macro lens that i purchased to go with my pentax 35mm. would this be a better idea?
