What are the differences between the two sets of lenses?

The E-series is a generation newer and are a bit sharper and more contrasty than the C-series though they intercut fine and most people use the 180mm E-series to fill out a package of C-series or Primo series. They are heavier than C-series and many have a 5' minimum focus distance, which is a bit limiting. I've heard that E-series used Nikon elements in them but I don't know if that is true.

I've heard the same thing.  Perhaps it is.

 Good write up from this very site.

 

Also yes, I too have heard Nikon, and the link seems to corroborate it. This doesn't, of course, means it's the same as say a Nikon "e" series lens for anyone who may get confused.
