5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

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 built-in focus motor
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

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.

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

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

2.Is a telephoto lens
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

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.

3.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

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.

4.Has full-time manual focus
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.

5.Includes lens hood
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.

6.Is a wide angle lens
