The E-series took the original Pen one step further with the addition of a meter and automatic exposure.  Many of these cameras had two shutter speeds.  The higher speed was used with the built-in meter -- it was activated when the film speed was dialed in.  Then the meter set the aperture automatically.  The slower speed was designed for flash pictures -- it was activated when the aperture was set manually.  This made the cameras much more versatile, since the flash option allowed the cameras to be used as a manual-exposure camera.

Although finding Olympus Pens is more challenging than locating Whirlpool parts, you may have some luck with our Swap Meet.
