I also wonder why there are no adapters for OM to FD mounts so that I could use an FD focal reducer for both.

I'm guessing there aren't any OM-FD adapters because the difference in flange distance is only 4mm between the OM and FD mounts, making an adapter difficult to impossible.

In these cases, I would pick SB on EF mount and use adapters for OM and FD lenses. Thats my plan with A-mount version too. Contax Zeiss lenses convertedto either A-mount or M42 screw mount.
