The Bower 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF is a wide-angle lens optimized for digital cinematography. The lens produces an image circle that will cover APS-C sized sensors or smaller. The focus and aperture rings feature industry-standard 0.8 pitch gearing for attaching a follow focus unit. The aperture ring is also de-clicked to allow for smooth iris pulls while shooting. Focus, aperture, and depth of field markings are on the side of the lens to aid focus pullers, who typically operate on the side of the camera.

The 16mm T2.2 lens is constructed out of 13 individual elements in 11 groups, including one aspherical and one hybrid aspherical element. Aspherical elements help minimize unwanted distortion and chromatic aberrations. The lens also has a multi-layer coating to reduce flares and maintain image contrast in bright conditions.

With an angle of view of 79.5°, the lens is well-suited for shooting landscapes, architecture, and for use in tight interior locations. A maximum aperture of T2.2 means that the lens is effective in low-light shooting and can produce a shallow depth of field when the lens is closer to the subject. The lens has a minimum focus distance of 7.87". A bayonet-mount lens hood and lens pouch come included with the lens.

          Comments about Bower 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF-S Mount:

          I recently purchased this lens. I already had the cine 35mm which I love and the 24mm both primes sharper than my canon zooms. The results have been excellent with video quality sharp especially if you shoot one stop down at 2.8 or above. The lens was excellent in very rainy and cold conditions on location for a TV sizzle reel. For the money you would pay for a Zeiss Cine Prime or Canon Cine Prime you can outfit your lens set with the whole line from ultra wide to the 85mm.

                I bought this lens to enhance my video productions with my Canon T4i. The lens gives me a beautiful cinematic look to my interviews and b-roll. It is easy to focus and iris, giving me a wide range of depth of field to play around with.
