4.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

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.

f/3.5 (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR)

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
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.

Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

A phase detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.

3.Has timelapse function
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR

Miscellaneous

1.minimum focus distance

0.2m (Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm F/3.5-5.6)

0.45m (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR)

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.

2.maximum angle of view

77° (Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm F/3.5-5.6)

76° (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR)

At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).

3.Has focus motor
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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

4.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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 a metal mount
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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

6.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon 1 V2 + 1 Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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.
