I used to use G1 and NANOHA X5 macro lens shoot little insects. Now I am very interested in Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.But I don't know if my lens can match the camera.

About my lens' parameter,
Below information is from website for your reference:
NANOHA x5 has 10 spherical glass lenses arranged in 7 groups.
Its multi-layers coating prevent reflection and mechanical damage.
It is possible to focus 11 mm away range with resulting 4x to 5x magnification.
It has four holders for taking pictures without a tripod . The holders are made of plastic and it is possible to modify them by cutting the guiding line to meet your demand.
The body of the lens is mostly metal, excluding the light module.
The removable light module includes 3 LEDs.
The lens was designed in Japan and manufactured in China, but before sale every single piece undergoes a final inspection in Japan.
NANOHA Prominent Feature:
#4x to 5x magnification
#Three leds built in the removable lighting module for giving continuous light
#4 plastic holders help to maintain steady distance and cut to favorable size
#Less reflection and true microscopic optic

If by "G1" you're referring to a camera with a Micro Four Thirds lens mount, then your lens will mount on a BMPCC pocket camera.

The BMPCC has a S16 size sensor, so its field of view will be smaller than that of a MFT camera. See:
http://www.abelcine.com/fov/

The BMPCC provide power to native MFT lenses to support lens features such as image stabilization. If your lens' built-in LED lights get their power from the camera, you'll have to wait to try your lens on a BMPCC to confirm if that feature is also supported. Most lenses don't include built-in LED lights, so that's a bit of an unknown at this point.

Thank you very much. While my lens' built-in LED lights doesn't get their power from the camera but from the battery.
Just as the picture shows.

No one can confirm it because no one has the camera yet. It's not started shipping yet.

If the lens was designed for the Micro Four Thirds spec then it will probably work on the BMPCC as Blackmagic are using the official MFT spec on the mount. ( BM are members of the MFT standards organisation).
