I’ve been using the Sony Nex-F3 for about a week now and took a bunch of sample photos using the Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens with 4:1, and 5:1 Magnification. This lens is incredible powerful and I can honestly say it’s pretty hard to use due to the super high magnification levels, shallow depth of field, and extremely close focus distance. Mind you, a lot of Macro lenses suffer from these same challenges, which makes Macro Photography a lot of fun if you ask me
The Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens has a Triple LED constant lighting rig built into the lens that is not only convenient, but actually works!! It’s powered by a little USB power supply that attaches with a cable when needed. I’ll go into more detail about the lighting in my full review, but for now know it works pretty good and is needed for most photos.
Yasuhara Nanoha Macro Lens 5:1
Here’s what she looks like, and note the holes notched out of the front area by the LED’s. This is where the little accessory clips snap in.
High Res Sample Photos
I took a bunch of these at 4:1 and 5:1 macro but since it’s a full manual lens, none of the exif data comes with the file about the lens unfortunately. I added some info in Lightroom 4, but for your reference I used f/16 and f/22 for most of these photos.
Guess the Macro!! Can you figure out specifically what this stuff is in the photos below?? Also, be sure to Click the Thumbnails for the 1200px Gallery Style Version!!
I’ll let you know later what everything is later, don’t worry!! I still need to so some focus stacking macro work as well to really get some killer images off of this lens, so stay tuned for that. Also, the Sony RX100, New Sony 18-200mm E-Mount Lens , and Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye Lens showed up last night I believe (still in BHPhoto Box), and I’m just itching to open the box!!!
