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.

I think even though both FD and OM are no more, there are far more FD's out there due to Canon being a much larger user base, so it makes sense to sell to the larger audience. I agree they should have made both, but id imagine it has to be convincing before the R&D is started.

Ask Brian?  The oracle started this thread, otherwsie we are just flapping our keyboards.

I don't know but I think that there are some bits that stick out of the back of OM lenses that complicate matters.
