Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III
2.Has a built-in focus motor
?

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.

For example

Nikon D6

3.viewfinder coverage
?

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 afterward to get them looking perfect.

5.has an optical viewfinder
?

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.

For example

Nikon D6

6.Has a hot shoe
?

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
