For the camera, I will probably get a 60D. Unlike 7D, there is an articulated LCD screen, it could be usefull for macro.

I don't think the 60D is a good choice for macro. IIRC it doesn't have the electronic first shutter curtain. This is probably more important than an articulating LCD at high magnifications.

p.s. Check the specs to be sure You can also search the http://www.photomacrography.net forums for more info on the 60D.

I don't have a 60D so I can't be 100% sure, but everything I read about the 60D when it first came out said that it had an electronic first curtain shutter the same as the 40D, 50D and I think the 5D mkII.

"In Silent Shooting mode 1, the 60D uses an electronic first curtain shutter, removing the need to close and reopen the mechanical shutter between Live View terminating, and the image exposure starting."
