    I'm really excited about the idea of that lens, but I'm worried about how it will perform on the P4K without in-camera lens correction. You know it's going to be a major player on the GH5 and GH5s. Also wondering about the price; that is not going to be a cheap lens.

    Are you sure that Edmika is still active? I couldn’t get through to him.

    This is just my opinion and your decision. Sell everything if you can. With the crop factor of the P4K, you're almost in long focal length with all the lens you currently have. Then use the money (add some) and you can go a couple of routes.
    1. Sigma 18-35mm with a metabone SB. Get a regular adapter too. This will give you a good zoom range of roughly about 30 to 80 (not exact numbers here, just illustrating that you'll have a range of focal lengths)
    2. The Samyang and Rokinon Cine lenses are nice and not expensive. A 35 or 50mm prime with a SB will be another option. If you like Frank's images, I believe he uses the Samyang on some of them and they've came out lovely).
    3. Get a MFT to PL adapter and rent high end PL lenses (like the Ultra Primes or Angie zooms) - this if you are serious about your craft.

    Going to PL opens things up a bit also. You can get a Metabones PL/MFT Speed Booster. That said, you can just get a Pro, shimmable MFT/PL adapter, and use lenses like the new Tokina 11-20 Cine Zoom for the wide end, and wither get a longer end zoom, or use some excellent PL Primes, like the SLR Magic APOs, which are fairly compact, compared to most.
    Cheers
