In-depth review of the new Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM ultra wide prime lens for Canon EOS R series cameras. I talk about use cases, image quality, distortions, aberrations, autofocus speed and noise (or rather complete lack thereof!). I compare the corner quality of stars for astrophotography at different apertures and you can also inspect the images that I took for yourself by downloading RAWs and/or JPEGs that I took (see below)


  • 00:00 Intro and disclaimers
  • 00:50 Build quality and features
  • 01:45 Compatibility with clip-in filters
  • 02:14 Image quality and distortions
  • 06:14 Sharpness at different apertures
