I think it does not make sens to invest ~1400€/$/£ on the camera body and only ~600 on two lenses, unless you want to use manual focus legacy lenses (that are great). In that case, get a Metabones Speed Booster and fast 28mm, 50mm and maybe 100mm manual focus legacy lenses. If you can get the Olympus 12-50mm powerzoom for 200$/$/£, that's nice, too (but slow aperture-wise). If you want any wide-angle and 4k, you can forget the manual focus legacy lenses, because 4k crops even more than Full HD / stills.
