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.
Get closer 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.
