I really am sorry to all of you are sick to death of this question but i really need help.
I'm trying to get in to photography and my main interest is extreme macro and I'd love to get images with good magnification.
When i started my research a few months back I was pretty dead set on getting a Canon 60d/70d so later on i could use the MP-E 65mm lens but all i have achieved since is getting my self lost in it all.
So my main question is where is my money best spent I have nothing what so ever so I can buy in to either camp (Nikon/Canon) and were to spend it. What would be the best starting equipment between 1000-2000,
Like i said my main interest is magnified macro but i would also like to take a few nice portraits and maybe a bit of other wildlife
so what would be the best equipment i could but to start out??

Cam Body
Lenes
Tripod
Flash
Shutter Remote
Extension Tube Kit
Reversing Ring
Filters
Bag For It All

Once again i am sorry for the question but if you could help me it would be amazing and any advice would be gratefully received as i am a complete novice
Thank You for your time
Rob
