Metabones speed booster for XE1

Metabones offers a Canon EF adapter to Xmount or contarex adapter to xmount.

Odd choice in that there is no Nikon adapter despite Nikon and Canon being dominant.

So if you want to mostly use the adapter with Nikon G lenses which would you get? The Canon one is $150 more expensive. But I do have a nice Novoflex Nikon to Canon adapter with aperture control. So I could get the Canon version and pay the $150 for no extra benefit over the cheaper ones and use the Novoflex. But how would you use the Contarex adapter which is cheaper. I guess there must be a Nikon to Contarex adapter?

Their site is a mess of possibilities and ignoring mainstream users. They are missing out big time on sales because of this. They need to offer a turn key system for mainstream lenses rather these really odd choices like Alpa (like who has Alpa lenses???).
