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.

And yet there are OM to EF adapters which only have 2 mm difference in flange distance.
