5. more viewfinder coverage

100%

6.has an optical viewfinder
Pentax K-50 + smc PENTAX-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR

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.

Optics

1.focus points

3.widest aperture

f/3.5 (Pentax smc DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR)

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.

Miscellaneous

1.minimum focus distance

0.25m (Pentax smc DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR)

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.

Best

Samsung NX Mini + NX-M 9mm f/3.5

0.11m

2.maximum angle of view

76° (Pentax smc DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR)

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).

3.Is a normal lens
Pentax K-50 + smc PENTAX-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR

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.aperture blades

6 (Pentax smc DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR)

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.

5.Has a metal mount
Pentax K-50 + smc PENTAX-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR

A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.

6.Has full-time manual focus
Pentax K-50 + smc PENTAX-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR

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.
