5.has an optical viewfinder
Canon ELPH 520 HS
Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm

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.

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Canon ELPH 520 HS
Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

2.Has a metal mount
Canon ELPH 520 HS
Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm

A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.

3.Is a normal lens
Canon ELPH 520 HS
Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm

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.

4.Front element doesn't rotate
Canon ELPH 520 HS
Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm

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.

5.Has rounded aperture blades
Canon ELPH 520 HS
Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm

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.

6.Can focus to infinity
Canon ELPH 520 HS
Canon EOS 5D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm

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.
