First Looks at Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens Image Quality

Image quality test results have been added to the Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens page.

From the Canon press release: "Long gone are the days of optical corrections ..."

Apparently, software correction has replaced optical correction as (strong) barrel distortion correction is forced by the camera and DPP software when using this lens.

Here are some comparisons:

Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens vs. Canon RF 14-35mm F4 L IS USM Lens

Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens vs. Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens

Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens vs. Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens

Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens vs. Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens

Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens vs. Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens

Note that an extreme corner crop has been added to the image quality tool. A small number of lens test results have this crop available (the Canon RF 14-35mm F4 L IS USM Lens and Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports Lens have it), I expect all future test result sets to include it, and if I get time, I'll process this crop for some earlier tests.

The Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens is available for order at B&H | Adorama | Canon USA | Amazon USA | WEX

Rent the Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Lens from Lensrentals.
