4.has an optical viewfinder
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony Alpha 7R III

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
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony Alpha 7R III

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. higher resolution (screen)

921k dots

1440k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

3.Has rounded aperture blades
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony Alpha 7R III

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
Sony A580 DSLR + DT 18-55mm/ F3.5-5.6 SAM
Sony Alpha 7R III

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.
