3.Is a normal lens
Nikon Coolpix P7100
Sony SLT-A55 + Sony DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon Coolpix P7100
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.
