3.has an optical viewfinder
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

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.

4. more viewfinder coverage

100%

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

3.Has focus motor
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

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

Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

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

5.Has rounded aperture blades
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

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.

6.Front element doesn't rotate
Samsung NX5 + Samsung 30mm NX Pancake

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.
