Nanoha 5x Ultra-Macro for Micro 4/3

Available Today

The Nanoha 5x Ultra-Macro is an extreme macro lens for Micro 4/3rds cameras and camcorders. By utilizing microscope optics, users have 4x-5x macro capabilities for their compact, lightweight mirrorless systems.

When shot at 5x, each pixel is recording roughly a single micrometer. The lens offers great corner sharpness, allowing high quality images of a rarely-seen part of this world. Its focus point is about 11mm when shooting a 5x, meaning a macro lens rail is almost required for precise work. Since the aperture range is limited to f/11-32 in full-stop increments, there is a built-in LED lighting unit that provides even lighting. The LED light unit is powered by an included external USB power supply.

This lens is so much fun! While it obviously has specific uses it was designed for, it’s also really fun to find random objects to shoot extreme macro shots of. It has provides surprising good image quality for such a low-cost specialty lens. Its slow aperture range means you’ll need a sturdy tripod, as the built-in LED unit gives enough light for 1/60 – 1/125 @f/11 exposure times at ISO 400. Since the focus point is so close, you’re pretty much limited to the LED unit being your only source of light. For the best image quality, you should definitely stop down to f/16-22. All in all, this lens makes me want to do macro work. When there’s downtime, and it’s in stock, I’m reaching for this guy.
