    Thoughts please.
    I've been shooting with the 100mm Series E and like the results.

    Thank You

    A 70-210mm f/4 E with a 13 element design appeared as an inexpensive alternative to the 80-200mm f/4 in 1981.

    Its performance must be regarded as inferior to that of the 80-210mm f/4, but only due to a slightly less contrasty rendition.

    The lower price was made possible by employing simpler mechanics so that it was not recommended for a pro's daily workout. On the other hand it cost about 50% of the comparable Nikkor-zoom.
