Optics

1.has AF tracking
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm 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.

2.focus points

11

39

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.

4.maximum light sensitivity

12800 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.

5.has built-in optical image stabilization
Nikon D3200 + Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

6.widest aperture

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

f/3.5 (Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm F/3.5-4.5G 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.
