Explicitly more focus points
Comment

vs
51
84 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

vs
No
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

×

43
Has an optical viewfinder
Comment
Yes
vs
No
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

Top 10 Reasons for Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
28
Has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.

×

26
Has focus motor
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

×

26
Is a normal lens
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A normal lens is one that doesn't fall into another category such as wide angle or telephoto, and typically has a focal length between 35mm and 70mm. These lenses aren't tailored towards a specific type of photography, and so are quite versatile.

×

26
Lens hood is reversible
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The lens hood can screw onto the lens in reverse so that you can keep it on your camera at all times, ready to use.

×

25
Front element doesn't rotate
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

×

25
Has full-time manual focus
Comment
Yes
vs
No
With full-time manual focus you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (auto focus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.

×

25
Can focus to infinity
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

×

25
Includes lens hood
Comment
Yes
vs
No
It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.

×

25
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

×

25
Has rounded aperture blades
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.
