Design

1.has a flip-out screen
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

For example

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS

2.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.

3.Weather sealed
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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

4.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.

6.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.

Optics

1.focus points

3.has AF tracking
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.

5.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

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 D850

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

For example

Leica D-Lux 7

6.has a 24p cinema mode

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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 D850

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.Has rounded aperture blades
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.Is a normal lens
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.

5.Has full-time manual focus
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.Can focus to infinity
Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX
Nikon D850

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.
