Austin, I asked Rick Nordin about this and he mentioned that the 110 had a slight re-formulation when it when to the FE designation. The F was the first version and it went through a minor modification when it became the FE designation. The current version has the newer flare control internally, but is the same formula as the 2nd version. A couple of the technicans at Hasselblad also confirmed this to me when I asked at the PhotoPlus Show.
