Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.

4.Weather sealed

Nikon D800E

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

5.Is dustproof and water resistant
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

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

6.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

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.

3.has AF tracking
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX

A phase detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.

3.Has timelapse function
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

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

2.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

3.Is a normal lens
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

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.

4.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

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.

5.Has full-time manual focus
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

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.

6.Lens hood is reversible
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D800E

The lens hood can screw onto the lens in reverse so that you can keep it on your camera at all times, ready to use.
