    What is this Pen F accessory?

    Has anyone ever seen the accessory in the image attached? What is it?

    Looks like a meter to me, that'd be my guess.

    How did it work? My Pen F doesn't have anything like that.

    It looks like it mounts to the shutter speed dial. Does anyone know if it's an Olympus accessory and what it was called? I still don't understand how it works; it looks like it couples to the shutter speed dial somehow.

    It was probably discontinued when the Pen FT came out with a built-in light meter.
    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    the thread explains how to install it ...
    it doesn't work with the FT just the F .. ( they say FT has a different shutter dial ).

    1967 where are you?
    There's a two eared mount around the SS dial, it just clicks in place.
    You can see the lens for the CDS cell on the front of the meter, the smaller round thingy o top in the picture
    It read from the top like the real old Pentax clip on meter.
    Some might say I have a bad attitude! Too bad.
