You should direct your question to Zeiss. There might be some different licensing costs for the EF lens mount. Who knows... only Zeiss.

Hi,

Canon mount is more complex I think. It's all electronic and needs motor for aperture. Nikon is probably simpler. Also, the ZF lenses have been along longer and probably more are sold.

Best regards

And perhaps there are more Nikon shooters who don't mind manual focus, or Zeiss lenses complement Nikon offerings better.
