New RF 16mm f/2.8 next to the nifty fifty RF 50mm f/1.8
9

I already owned the RF 50mm f/1.8mm for some months now so I placed it next to the new RF 16mm f/2.8 when it arrived today from pre-order. It appears Canon has found a clever way to achieve more economy of scale: they have used the exact same outer casing. The optical elements inside are rather different though.

50mm left, 16mm right

backside, 50mm left, made in Malaysia, 16mm right, made in Taiwan
