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 a metal mount
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.
anonymous
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.

25
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.

Is a telephoto lens
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A telephoto lens allows you to zoom in on far away objects. This is particularly useful when you need to photograph a subject from a distance, such as wildlife photography, or even in some cases street photography where you can’t get near the subject.
