4.has an optical viewfinder
Olympus VR-330
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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
Olympus VR-330
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.

2.widest aperture

f/3

f/3.5

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.

3.has AF tracking
Olympus VR-330
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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

1600 ISO

12800 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.

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

3.Is a normal lens
Olympus VR-330
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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
Olympus VR-330
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM

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.
