5.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS 700D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

6.Has a built-in focus motor
Canon EOS 700D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.

Optics

1.focus points

15

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.

2.sensor size

23.5 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3.widest aperture

f/3.5 (Canon EF-S 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM)

f/3.5

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

4.has AF tracking
Canon EOS 700D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

0.39m (Canon EF-S 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM)

0.25m (Sony DT 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6)

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.

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

5.Is a telephoto lens
Canon EOS 700D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

6.Has rounded aperture blades
Canon EOS 700D + Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.
