I saw some footage from the GH4 and read its specs… it looks impressive. I own a Canon 70D with some Canon glasses and the Sigma 18-35 1.8.
I was thinking about moving to Panasonic. I know that i can't use Canon lenses even with adapters. So i was wondering if it's worth buying the Panasonic lenses (the 12-35 2.8) or purchase the Nikon version of the Sigma 18-35, so i can use it with a normal adapter and with the speedbososter from metabones which would give me more field of view.
The only thing is that i read that using non Panasonic lenses you lose the optical stabilizer. Is this true?
Any suggestions about my ideas?

Yes, the 18-35 f1.8 with the Speed Booster is much faster, but, you are correct, you will lose image stabilization (autofocus too).
I also suggest you keep your Canon glass. Soon (I hope), Metabones will release a Canon EF to MFT Speed Booster 🙂
