Interesting, as I am just looking into this. But why no OM to MFT version?

I'm guessing: when there is a large number of users, there will be an adapter (as it needs to sell).

Although I'm originally an OM film cameras users, most of the legacy lenses I'm now using with my Micro 4/3 are Nikon. I don't know if this is the case with other users.

OM lenses are a dying breed because there are no current SLRs to support them. I'm very sorry to say.

So why did they make an FD speedbooster then? Contax/Yashica?

The OM mount makes more sense than any other mount. Metabones would have made more sales on the OM speedbooster than the C/Y.
