Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony A6000

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

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.

Sony A6000

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

2.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony A6000

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.

3.Is a telephoto lens
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony A6000

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.

4.Has full-time manual focus
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony A6000

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

Sony A6000

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
