This is one of the hidden secrets of the classic Nikkor line. People often confuse it with the Series-E but this lens is much better. It has a metal body and is multicoated. Compare this lens to the giant zooms and the compact size is very appealing. This lens is inÂ good condition with light wear. There are a few small spots of coating loss on an inner element, but it is very minimal and I don't see it in my example photos. The glass is clean and scratch-free. The focus and aperture are smooth. Caps are included. This is a nice lens!
