Why such a simple thing has to be so complex? Did you have a problem with selecting just a equal M43 lens?

I'm still can't fathom the depth of idea behind setup

Umm, you seem to have completely missed what these focal reducers do.  They are designed to adapt full frame or (some) APS-C lenses to smaller formats by shrinking the image circle, which has the added benefit of reducing the effective aperture of the lens.  You couldn't attach an MFT lens to a focal reducer because it would make the image circle smaller than the sensor.
