What I tried to say was that an earlier single coated Nikkor and a Series E give a different signature the single coated lens having less contrast less likely to get digital highlight burn note even in C41 mono the effect is useful.
The E and the AF were decades apart and even if the same double Gauss scheme unlikely to be same glass the glass catalogue changes.
I take SC and MC on a shoot even with retained Ag
