Expanded Canon RF 16mm f2.8 STM Lens Key Features:

Optical Structure

The Canon RF 16mm f2.8 STM Lens is equipped with an intricate optical makeup that results in stunning imagery. The pathway is made up of 9 premium glass elements, including 1 aspheric lens and that are arranged into 7 distinct groups. Together with its maximum f2.8 aperture, you’re able to experiment with depth of field as well as capture stunning images, rich with detail and accurate colour rendition. Furthermore, the ultra-wide-angle 16 field of view can be transformed into essentially a second 25.6mm wide-angle lens when shooting in code mode.

AF Performance

Canon has incorporated a powerful STM motor to drive the autofocusing mechanism in this lens. This motor enables super-smooth, quiet and fast autofocusing that is ideal for those shooting conditions where discretion is key to a perfect shot. Equally, while this autofocusing performance is ideal for photography, it also offers exceptional, cinematic results for video work, too. Where this accurate AF performance excels is for vlogging purposes where, when combined with the expressive aperture control, you can create wholly professional and engaging content for your audience.
