Why?

E series lenses whilst not having the heavy build quality of AI or AIS lenses and perhaps the coatings may not be the same standard, but I have never found them wanting, with regard to performance.

The AI and AIS have the edge in optical quality, ideal if you are shooting slides and want to squeeze a bit more out
The build quality is better like you mentioned
I think i read somewhere the 50mm f1.8 ais pancake is a E series lens with more coatings
