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.
