Nikon D3100
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm 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.

4.Is dustproof and water resistant
Nikon D3100
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D3100
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm 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 hot shoe

Nikon D3100
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm 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.

4.maximum light sensitivity

12800 ISO

25600 ISO

25600 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
