Miscellaneous

1.minimum focus distance

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

1.4m (Sony DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6)

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.Has focus motor
Nikon D60 + 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX NIKKOR
Sony SLT-A99V + Sony SAL-55300

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

3.maximum angle of view

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

29° (Sony DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6)

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).

4.Is a telephoto lens
Nikon D60 + 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX NIKKOR
Sony SLT-A99V + Sony SAL-55300

A telephoto lens allows you to zoom in on far away objects. This is particularly useful when you need to photograph a subject from a distance, such as wildlife photography, or even in some cases street photography where you can’t get near the subject.

5.Is a normal lens
Nikon D60 + 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX NIKKOR
Sony SLT-A99V + Sony SAL-55300

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.

6.aperture blades

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

7 (Sony DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6)

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.
