Is Sigma 17-50 f2.8 sharp enough for GH4 ?

Hi
Panasonic GH4 for shooting video is gonna be my new my camera very soon. I'm wondering what I should do about the lenses...
Should I buy a new one like Olympus 12-40mm 2.8 or buy a Metabones and use my Sigma 17-50 f2.8 with IS?
I've been watching at some videos in youtube/vimeo and I really have the feeling that Sigma is not sharp/quality enough... am I right? It must be the compression used to uploaded? Any opinions about that?
Thanks!

I had the Sigma 17 to 50mm and sold it. I felt it it was really soft and the lens didn't resolve the 4k well. I tried it on the Blackmagic, A7Sii, and the GH4. To get the most out of the sensor I believe you need to use the Sigma Art lenses. Now those are amazing lenses for the price.
