Miscellaneous

1.minimum focus distance

1.4m (Sony DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6)

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

0.11m

2.Has focus motor
Sony SLT-A99V + Sony SAL-55300

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

3.maximum angle of view

29° (Sony DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6)

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).

4.Is a telephoto lens
Sony SLT-A99V + Sony SAL-55300

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.

5.aperture blades

7 (Sony DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6)

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.

Best

6.Has rounded aperture blades
Sony SLT-A99V + Sony SAL-55300

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.
