I’m waiting to order as soon as someone in HK starts taking pre-orders

i am not expecting wonders, given the price. But I think it will be useful in some situations, given the size. I already have an EF 16-35 f4

Looking at the posted MTF charts, it looks fairly bad though? Or I am just not seeing the right picture? Can someone with a better understanding have an opinion on how this might compare to some of the known cheap lenses

RF 16mm f/2.8 STM

I’ve mostly got used to lenses that flatline at top in recent years. The only comparable lens I have is the EF 50mm STM ii, so I’m a bit hazy on what to expect

Here is the published MTF chart for the RF 50mm f1.8 for comparison.  I looks similar to the RF16mm overall. From frequent use I know the RF50mm f1.8  lens can give excellent results when the aperture is closed down a bit.

So I think the RF 16mm f2.8 will be OK. I have pre-ordered one anyway.
