Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM
Canon faced some initial criticism for its big and hefty RF-mount lenses that somewhat negated the slimline advantage of mirrorless EOS R-series cameras. More recently, the pounds have dropped off with a spate of compact, lightweight lenses, including the RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM, RF 50mm f/1.8 STM, RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM, RF 600mm F11 IS STM and RF 800mm F11 IS STM, as well as the RF 14-35mm F4L IS USM, RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM, RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM and RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM zooms. That’s quite a list!
The RF 16mm F2.8 STM is the latest prime to join the catwalk club, with slinky dimensions and a weight of just 165g, while delivering an ultra-wide viewing angle that’s ideal for shooting everything from cramped architectural interiors, through sweeping landscapes to the starry night sky above. And all at an incredibly competitive price.
