General info

1.Has a metal mount
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.
2.has or is a prime lens
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
4.Is a telephoto lens
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
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.
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
6.Is a normal lens
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
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.
7.Front element doesn't rotate
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
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.

Optics

1.magnification

0.11x

0.14x

A true macro lens has a magnification of 1:1. This means that the image produced is a life-size representation of the subject being photographed.
At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).
At the longest end of the lens you get the narrowest angle of view. This allows you to fit a small portion of the scene into the photograph, such as when you are zooming in on a subject (based on APS-C format).
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

Aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.
4.Has rounded aperture blades
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
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.
A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.
The aperture controls how much light gets through to the camera’s sensor. More blades is often an indicator of a better quality lens. It also allows you to achieve much nicer looking bokeh when blurring out your background, whereas a lens with less blades will often produce harsher, more polygonal bokeh.

Focus

1.Can focus to infinity
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
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.
2.Has focus motor
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
3.Has full-time manual focus
Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN A
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.
This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.
