Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM 


Meet the RF 16MM F2.8 STM. It’s the ultimate affordable EOS R-series lens for vlogging and more. For crisp, clear ultra-wide views this lightweight and super compact full frame 16mm prime will transform your images and videos, inspiring creativity at every opportunity – from landscapes to architecture and even astrophotography. Can you afford not to have one?

Ultra-wide view to capture all the detail

At 16mm, the RF 16MM F2.8 STM’s full-frame focal length is ultra-wide, offering optimum vlogging potential and great creative opportunities for content creators shooting interiors and big views.

Smooth and quiet STM motor, perfect for video

The STM lens motor offers refined, quiet focusing and great smoothness. It is fast for photo, and provides that stunning cinematic look for video, too.

Fast f/2.8 circular aperture

The RF 16MM F2.8 STM has a fast f/2.8 aperture, delivering smooth, soft bokeh and highlights, great for landscapes with lots of foreground, as well as depth-of-field control when you want to vlog.

A beautifully small, light, take anywhere lens

The RF 16MM F2.8 STM weighs only 165g and measures just 40.1mm1 in length, so you can leave it on your camera all day or pack it in your kitbag and take it out for spontaneous creative moments.

Superb image quality

The RF 16MM F2.8 STM features nine lens elements in seven groups with a single PMo aspheric lens for excellent colour rendition and crisp, contrasty images – great for architecture and travel.

High quality filmmaking in crop mode

When shooting in crop mode, the RF 16MM F2.8 STM becomes a 25.6mm wide-angle – effectively a second lens – making it ideal for content creators seeking more options.

"For the price of this lens, it is amazing value for money. The only issue I had originally, was the lack of a profile in Photoshop and Lightroom but that has been included in the latest updates. It is a wee bit fragile and lacks waterproofing but in terms of image quality, I am very impressed. "
