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 in excellent condition and works perfectly. The glass is scratch-free. There is a small amount of dust inside the lens, but it will not affect your image quality. The focus and aperture are smooth. Caps are included. This is a nice lens!
