3.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

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.

4. more viewfinder coverage

95%

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

5.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

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.

6.Has a hot shoe
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

3.has AF tracking
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

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

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.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

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 continuous autofocus when recording movies

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

4.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Miscellaneous

1.maximum angle of view

76° (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6G 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).

2.minimum focus distance

0.28m (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6G 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.

4.transmission

5TStop (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6G VR)

The transmission result from the DxOMark set of metrics. Transmission refers to the amount of light that reaches the sensor through all of the glass elements of a lens, with a lower TStop signifying more light. This is important as less light reaching the sensor can lead to the requirement of higher ISOs or slower shutter speeds. Tested with Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. Source: DxOMark.

5.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

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.aperture blades

7 (Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6G VR)

The aperture controls how much light gets through to the camera’s sensor. More blades is often an indicator of a better quality lens. It also allows you to achieve much nicer looking bokeh when blurring out your background, whereas a lens with less blades will often produce harsher, more polygonal bokeh.
