Did you shutterbugs out there asked to turn your mirrorless camera into a microscope? No? Good. Here’s a new kind of lens that will kind of turn your mirrorless camera into a microscope.

We didn’t say that, btw. The company, Yasuhara, said that. And why would anyone do that? Ermm, I guess it is fun? Let you see things in a different perspective? Maybe?

Anywho, the lens in question is called Nanoha Macro Lens. It is designed specifically for micro 4/3 and offers up to 5x magnification. Admittedly, that’s a lot less than an actual microscope can do. But hey, remember ‘fun’?

While it may not be as weird as the Laowa 24 mm f14 Probe Lens aesthetically, the prospect of turning your expensive mirrorless snapper into a “microscope” is indeed pretty bizarre.

Speaking of Laowa’s, it has a 2:1 macro, but Nanoha takes it even further to 4:1-5:1 which should be a good news for those who want to have, say, a closer that the couch’s fiber.

Like Laowa’s, Nanoha, too, has a separately powered LED lights to help light up the subject if the situation calls for it.

Before you jump on this, you have to know that the effective focus distance is 11-19 mm and that means that the lens literally has to be covering the subject to shoot. Well, no surprise, it is a microscope, isn’t it?
