Key Features
  • 4:1 to 5:1 Macro Magnification
  • Removable Three-LED Light Source
  • Focusing Range: 11-19mm

The Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens 5:1 for Canon EF-M is a true macro lens for photographing at 4:1 or 5:1 magnifications. A removable lighting module has three LEDs for lighting very small objects, which is often necessary because the lens itself is so close as to block light from the subject. Also included are four plastic holders that can be mounted to the front of the lens to maintain a consistent distance of 0.43-0.75" / 11-19mm between lens and subject. These plastic holders can be easily modified by cutting them to fit your subject.

Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Reviews

Amazing macro quality but super narrow margin for focus...

This would be an excellent lens if I was just focused on doing photography but because my main focus is video, I've decided to return it because the focus window is too narrow for my use. But(!) it IS amazing what you can do with this lens and I highly recommend it if you're just doing photography or videography with minimal movement.

I would buy this product again.

Wonderful service from seller, arrived very quickly to Australia. The lense is awesome, but the lighting was not what we expected, so removed light and improvised own camera flash to suit. We are still learning how to get the best out of this great lens.

Superb in its intended application

I use this on an Olympus OMD EM5 MkII with the in-camera focus stacking feature. It produces excellent, consistent results. I blow the images up to 30 long dimension, if I've done my part they are lovely. Because many of the subjects I shoot are reflective, I removed the LED hood and use lights from the side. Best results come from focus stacking, but that is routine in all my close-up work.

Super Macro Lens

Using for macro photos. It's not regular macro but super macro and works good. LED help a lot but there is a problem when selecting 4x then you can focus with the LED's mount. You have to remove the LED's for that purpose. The sharpens is there but like any Macro is limited so stuck focusing need it if want to get a full picture of something.

Not for everyone

This lens is great for scientific purposes, I use it to take pictures of microscope slides to digitalise the Universities collection. Its not simple to use, I had to fix myself something up by attaching a video camera slider on a stick and attach it to the tripod, works great!

Works well, you will need more stuff

There is nothing wrong with the lens; it works well, surprisingly well given the price. The lights are a huge help, but you may want to get offset lights unless you're ok with flat lighting (for this lens, the built-in lights are acceptable and so handy that I'm not fiddling with external lighting). Really wish this lens came with a lens cap though. The fact that the lens is inset into the casing and the holes for the lights means that it is a dust magnet unless you keep it protected. I'm using a thin plastic sandwich bag and a rubber band as a makeshift lens cap until I find something else (took off a star for the lack of a cap). Because of the 5:1 magnification and super narrow DOF, you are going to need stabilization. I'm using a Manfrotto table top tripod and a Manfrotto focusing rail that work well.

I'm a big fan of this lens. Plus, lens cap update.

I'm a big fan of this lens. My comment is more to address an earlier comment. A user has requested a lens cap. There is one available on Thingiverse. You can download the OpenSCAD file (free), and print it on any 3d printer. You should be able to find the lens cap also via a Google search for Yasuhara Nanoha Lens Cap.

Not that good at 4-5 x

The LED had to be removed so I can focus at that magnification. The lens was to close to object and was hard to apply light for it. Im glad I sold that lens at big lost but Need to be done.  I dont recommend that lens.
