It becomes obvious if you look at the 3.5 models. The F evolves from the E
but they had to increase the distance between the lenses for the 1st model's
compur shutter. The 3.5E3 shares the same lensdistance hence the frontpanel,
lensboard and body parts are the same as the F and they are different than
the E and E2 models.

The EVS system is located on the frontpanel and adding this is quite simple.
