RF16f2.8 vs RF15-35 vs RF50f1.8 vs RF24-240@24 Comparison
8

I just got an RF16f2.8 lens for some "specialty work."  I thought it would be interesting to compare it to my RF15-35f2.8L (at 15, 24, and 35mm). I also was curious how it compared to the RF50f1.8 and RF24-240 at 24mm.

All my tests use a 1-meter wide test chart and move the camera on a tripod with a macro-rail and a geared head for alignment.  The pattern is illuminated from the sides with two LED arrays and tries for uniform illumination with minimal specular reflection. I then step through from the widest aperture and then every whole f-stop using Canon's phone app.

There are resolution targets across the chart. The image below takes crop from the center, the Mid upper (about 2/3rds of the way from the center), and the upper-left corner.

All pictures are taken in cRAW and then processed by DPP4. The only adjustment is to white balance based on a gray card in the test chart.
