José:
In response to Q2: yes, you get double the frames.
For Q3: Other Pen F/FT/FV lenses fit this camera; however, I believe there is 
no ground glass screen in these models and focussing is difficult (impossible?).
For Q4: There is an adapter for OM lenses. I suspect it sells for $80-120 on 
Eb*y. The lenses operate in stopped down mode.

You may be interested in Skip Williams' site, which has info on the Pen F range 
of cameras:

Hi!
this afternoon I found and bought an old Pen F (I get it for $50.00). The 
curiosity is that in the rear is engraved ' Medical use type 1' Series number 
120258 (maybe a 'connaisseur' could give me the year of production)

The lens in the camera is as an inverted cone, Machida f:75 mm with a curious 
cap...in place of apertures there are only engraved 1 to 5 in Arabic ciphers. 
When turn approximate and become very clear image.... (maybe would be better 
that I make a pic and put it in Pbase or Flickr).. The shutter is very special 
too and  difficult for me to explain  (English is my third language :) not 
still mastered)

questions:
1) Do you know this kind of lens and the use?
2) I read is a 'half camera' that means that a 24 poses would give me 48 pics?
3)There are in the List who have other lens that I could buy (out of list) for 
this camera
4) Do you know if there are adapter for using my OM system lens ?

Thanks a lot!
Gracias!
JAS
