High image quality and bright, fixed f/2.8 maximum aperture
A bright f/2.8 lens combined with the full-frame sensor of each EOS R series digital camera allows for fast shutter speeds in low light with less noise and the ability to beautifully blur the background in close-up shooting or video recording.
A stepping motor (gear-type STM) that provides smooth and quiet continuous AF during video recording
Using a stepping motor in the RF16mm F2.8 STM lens aids in natural focus while following a subject using Servo AF in still photography, or clean transitions when repositioning to another subject with Movie Servo AF in video applications. Canon's STM focus motors are especially renowned for their smoothness in focus changes during live video recording, as well as brisk AF during still-image shooting.
Supremely lightweight and compact, for an ultra-wide lens for full-frame cameras
The compact size and lightweight of the lens make it an ideal companion on long hikes and excursions. It is also handy for a day out in the city and when you want to be creative with multiple prime lenses.
Minimum focusing distance of 5.11 inches and a maximum magnification of 0.26x
Getting close to your subject with the RF16mm F2.8 STM lens means purposefully distorting your subject, creating an enjoyable new look while also keeping more of the background in the frame for visual interest.
Control/Focusing Ring can directly adjust numerous settings
The RF16mm F2.8 STM lens incorporates a control/focus ring on the lens barrel. As a Control Ring, it can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, and more. Located towards the end of the lens, the control/focus ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder.
Circular 7-blade aperture helps deliver beautiful, soft backgrounds
You'll have no problem when shooting close-up images in getting that creative, fun and pleasantly smooth out-of-focus background blur we all love with the circular 7-blade aperture. Subjects will stand out, and the background provides a beautiful backdrop that's visually appealing in itself.
