4.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony Alpha 7R III

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.

5.Is dustproof and water resistant
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

6.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony Alpha 7R III

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
Sony Alpha 7R III

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 Alpha 7R III

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 Alpha 7R III

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.Can focus to infinity
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony Alpha 7R III

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

5.Is a wide angle lens
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony Alpha 7R III

A wide angle lens is great for capturing larger areas of a scene, such as when doing architectural or landscape photography.

6.Has full-time manual focus
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR
Sony Alpha 7R III

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.
