Detailed Description

RF16mm f/2.8 STM

Ultra-wide field of view mixed with a compact and portable design, the Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM is a sleek everyday wide-angle prime. Blending a compact, lightweight design with a bright maximum aperture, this rectilinear ultra-wide comes in handy when photographing interiors and architectural subjects, as well as broad landscape views and astrophotography scenes.

One aspherical element is featured in the optical design, which limits distortion and contributes to a high degree of sharpness for accurate rendering. This unique lens also sports a close 5.1″ minimum focusing distance for close-up shooting and the STM AF motor enables smooth and quiet focusing performance to suit both photo and video applications. The lightweight design and broad field of view also make this lens an enticing option for vlogging and content creation.


  • Large Aperture of f/2.8
  • Lightweight & Compact
  • 0.26x Magnification

Compact Lightweight Design

Designed to be small and portable, the RF16mm f/2.8 STM is comparable to the popular RF50mm f/1.8 STM in terms of size. Weighing at only approx. 165g, it makes an ideal combination for those who want ultra-wide-angle lens with minimum weight and size.

0.26x Magnification

The RF16mm f/2.8 STM has a minimum focusing distance of 0.13m for up to 0.26x magnification, allowing for a more dynamic approach to ultra-wide-angle perspective. At f/2.8, it would also give pleasing bokeh.

Outstanding Image Quality from Edge to Edge

Dual Function Switch

RF16mm f/2.8 STM uses only one Focus/Control selector switch to change between focusing and control ring function, making the design more compact.

RF Mount

Taking advantage of the RF mount which enables large-diameter elements to be placed closer to the image plane, allows RF16mm f/2.8 STM to be more lightweight and compact while delivering high image quality.

PMo Aspheric Lens

Placing a single PMo aspheric lens in the focus group allows for high image quality across the image from infinity to minimum distance.

Super Spectra Coating

This special coating on the RF16mm f/2.8 STM reduces flaring and ghosting. The coating also prevents contrast loss in a backlit scenario for a sharper and clearer image.
