Actually I do not think the Yasuhara Nanoha is not really a macro lens. It is more like the missing link between a macro lens and a microscope.
The lens comes with a 3 LED lighting which is fixed to the lens. A screw driver is included, so you could remove it. There is also a battery box (which is fed by 2 AA batteries) and a USB cable.
The lens has a maximum aperture of 11 and stops down to 32 and the focus works between 11 and 16 millimeters. I do not need to tell you what that means for depth of field.
I started a Flickr group dedicated to the Yasuhara Nanoha. If you want to see some special things nanohified let me know…
When I first took it out of the packaging I thought it was broken. But the lens element is not fixed if the lens is not “on”, aperture is closed.
Size is smaller than the 18-55 kit lens, I would say it is as if someone cut the kit lens between zoom and focus ring. Build quality is high and solid plastics. It feels good and I like the smooth focus ring. I tried some shots, could not find any odd things. I doscovered some very soft magenta streaks in very high dynamic regions when pixelpeeping. Concerning the quality I would say that this is a no-brainer for Euro 199,-.
For those of you who like pixelpeeping I have some testshots in f/2.8, f/4 and f/8 at my ge.tt acount, for all the others: A wallpaper in Full-HD.
