Transmission shift from 2nd to 3rd

Alright, I just got my '86 300E (W124) a month or so ago, and when I bought it, I noticed that it has a somewhat lengthy shift time between 2nd and 3rd gear (auto transmission). I find this a little scary because I'm starting to assume that my transmission is screwed up and starting to go out or something. I checked the fluid and it's full and looks fine. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or knows anything about it. It seems abnormal to me because it takes a second or two which when punching on the gas is long enough to rev up the engine inbetween gears then it catches 3rd. It doesn't seem extremely bad, but it definately concerns me, can anyone offer some info?
