    Would be nice to have something like this!

    Officially announced: Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM Lens! – mirrorlessrumors

    A macro lens with a built in LED. Canon have come up with one, the first mainstream company to do this.

    YASUHARA/NANOHA

    Nanoha has a macro lens (for NEX) but the Canon LED implementation is so much more elegant!

    bipbip, I believe a continuous light is disticntly different from a ring flash.

    Depends if the end result is for still image or video.

    I think that the Medical Nikkors had pilot (modelling) lamps for focusing and they were incandescent but obviously not as bright as the new LEDs are.
