Hi Tim, 

I use a Sony Cybershot DSC-717 5.0 mgpx on my Olympus BX40 using an adapter
developed by Martin Microscopes www.martinmicroscope.com.  Check out their
web site where they list the scopes for which they have adapters.  Bobby
Martin is a very knowledgeable person.

Hi Everyone:

I am in the market for a new digital camera.
I use digital imaging to take a series of  microscopic pictures on each case
that comes through our department.
These images are then put on our image archive for the research community.
I have demoed the following cameras:

The  Leica DC 480  (5.1 megapixel)
The Olympus  DP70  (12.5 megapixel)
The Zeiss AxioCam HR  (1.3 Megapixel)

Could people give me an idea of their experience using these cameras, the
pros and cons, easy of use, etc.  (Leica vs Olympus vs Zeiss)?
The megapixel capacity seems not as important an issue to me, as comparing
the overall function of each company's line of cameras, since I feel that I
can pretty much extrapolate  from one resolution capability to another
within each company's line-up. The software seems to be about the same
within each company's group of cameras.

Thanks for any opinions or advice you can give me.
