Could Panasonic LX100 be a good video b-cam to my GH4?

    I just started to think about my companion camera to my GH4.
    As I'm moving forward to 4K/Ultra HD for my small media company, I need a 4K capable b-cam. Could the LX100 or maybe the FZ1000 be a good second video cam?

    I'm doing a lot of hybridphotography; mixing a lot between stills and video, and many times just pure video.

    As of this time I just got the GH4 with 4K capability and my Nikon D610 as second video cam (Full HD only b-cam) as I just traded in a lot for the GH4.

    I'm not rushing in for a second 4K cam but I'm just wondering if one of these cams I mentioned could serve well as a 4K b-cam to the GH4?

    Need some advise here as I've just started to explore these options.

    I am happy to write that I just now ordered a Panasonic Lumix LX100 :) 
    I´ve read som much about it; I believe that it will be great companion and b-cam to my GH4.
    I am enjoying 4K so much now that I can´t go back to HD anymore.
    Even if I export to 1080p the editing in 4K gives so much legroom; cropping etc.
    Now I´ll have to 4K (UHD) capable cameras!
