We're looking to buy a DSLR camera for microscopy purposes. which parameters are to be considered, and which camera would you recommend?

If it's anything like astro-photography one of the most important things is the mounting / coupling and the Live View focus check. I find Canon DSLRs are the best for this sort of thing as they have one of the best Live View magnification modes to really confirm the focus and there's also lots of adapters to connect to different systems. Canon also supplies free software with its DSLRs for USB remote control via a laptop.

But if it's about recording ultimate crispness, the new Nikons without an optical low pass filter may be tempting...
