    From my understanding, the Pocket camera speedbooster does not adhere to the M4/3 standard. So therefore, it will not fit.

    I would be contacting Metabones directly for clarification.

    No, the BMPCC Speed Booster has two issues on a GH4/5. First, the projected image circle is designed for a S16 size sensor, will not cover the MFT sensor in the GH cameras. Next, the rear element in the SB will hit the sensor cover glass in the GH Camera. You need to get the MFT GH4/5 version of the Speed Booster to use on a GH Camera.
    Cheers
