Bower 16mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount from Bower is a manual focus wide-angle prime lens compatible with Olympus and Panasonic MFT format mirrorless digital cameras. It provides a 67.6° angle of view which translates into a 35mm format focal length equivalency of 32mm. A fast maximum aperture of f/2.0 is effective in low light shooting and provides shallow depth of field. With two aspherical lens elements and high index extra-low dispersion glass, chromatic aberrations are minimized and sharp, color-accurate images are the result. Full multi-coating facilitates even light transmission and reduces ghosting and flares.

    Bower 16mm f/2.0 reviews

    16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the most underrated M43 lenses First off Rokinon, Bower, Samyang are all the same... They're all Rokinon lenses! Let's start... The focus ring is smooth. The bokeh is really quality for such a wide lens. I thought that because it was a Micro Four Thirds it couldn't produce a shallow depth of field... Boy was I wrong! I've seen this lens at $469... At the $214 price I paid... This lens is an absolute must! The colors are a bit warmer with this lens than my other lens'... Which gives this lens a character that I like. The only questions in my mind are why does this lens have to be so big for only 16mm? It's heavy, all metal, rugged... All good. But it's not weather-sealed. Filter size is 77mm... Very large. As for gimbals, you better have one with a good weight capacity like the Moza Air I'm using or the Zhiyun Crane 2. Other than that... It's A WORTHY BUY. I use it for video mostly.
