The shutter speed ring was placed around the lens mount so one can adjust
for exposure entirely with the left hand... That means that you can keep
your face up to the viewfinder all of the time! I've found that the shutter
speed ring on my OM-1n (no AE mode) is a little wider and much less awkward
to use than on my 4ti. Hmmm...
