This lens would be great for Astrophotography. I don't have sample images but, it's definitely a great choice.

Is this lens build strong enough to support the weight of a 100mm filter system such as the Nisi 100mm filter system?
Asked by: jackie
The Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM Lens uses 43mm front filter threads. Unfortunately, none of the 100mm (4-inch) filter holders we carry have 43mm adapter rings to connect the filter holder to the lens' filter threads. While it may be possible to use a step-up ring to connect the filter holder to the lens, I would probably try to use a different lens.

How doe this lens compare to the How does this lens compare to the RF 14-35mm f4 in edge to edge sharpness at f16?
Asked by: Robert
I've shot extensively with both lenses, and for the price, weight and size, the 16 is a very nice lens (see my review). Edge to Edge compared to the $1,200 more expensive 14-35? I don't think that's a fair comparison. Set up properly, this can be an excellent lens for a lot of scenarios--street, landscape, even interiors--but it's not going to be quite as sharp as the 14-35...at least not in my comparisons. Still, hard to fault it for that.

Is this lens compatible with Canon M50?

Is this lens compatible with Canon M50?
Asked by: gek-choo
The M50 only uses EF-M lenses and cannot accept RF lenses. However, Sigma makes this 16mm f1.4 lens for the M50 and other EF-M mount cameras: https://bhpho.to/3mWJq4y

Is there both auto focus and manual focus on this lens? I do not see a focus circle for manual focus on the lens.
Asked by: orkell
This lens does have AF and MF as options. The switch on the lens can be used to control focus or to use as a custom configuration. When it's set to Focus, and you set the camera's focusing mode to MF, the ring will control the focus.

Does this lens work well with lens filters?

Does this lens work well with lens filters?
Asked by: Johnny
When I added 52 mm ND filters, I encountered horrendous vignetting as I got to the stronger densities. I am here looking for solutions to this. Maybe go even larger in thread size?
