    welcome to CS!

    Can't say for certain which shop gives you the best price.
    You should check with a few of the reputable shops and compare prices.
    Exploring! :)

    Very interesting ... usually, most seniors here would advise you to get to know how to use your camera first with the kit lens, and not worry so much about acquiring lenses, unless your pocket is very deep. In which case, I advise you to develop your skills more than your inventory.

    No point carrying a DSLR but shooting and getting crappy pictures ... just my 2 cents.

    Cheers!

    To take marco/micro, Just having a macro lens is usually not enough.

    Other stuff recommended:

    - A very stable tripod. One of those to make your center column horizontal will be excellent. Something like a Manfrotto 190xprob, or Gitzo explorer. Something that allow you to do this: http://www.jamesbyun.com/blogpics/gitzo.jpg

    - Flash with diffuser or front ring flash. See here for examples. Many people DIY.

    - Macro Railing that allows you to slide your camera back and forth. See here for examples.

    As for reading to get you started on how to do it, here are some links:
