I am impressed. Firstly the camera sounds like the ideal nightscape Milky Way type camera which I like to do.

2ndly the camera also records in camera 2K video and also allows the Log 2 which is supposed to be sensational.

The fact of most people not having 4K devices to display the results is temporary limitation as no doubt they will be commonplace within a few years. You can shoot in 4K now and see how wonderful it is later on if it comes down to it. Or buy a 4K computer monitor now.

This is exactly it.  Sony are pushing the ground up with 4K with the hope that it will benefit their struggling TV segment because they've found people will only buy new TVs if they're broken or there's something worth upgrading to.  If 4K takes a long time to take off, then their 4K TVs will struggle that much longer.  Putting 4K equipment in more people's hands sooner is important for that reason (even if the early adopters in this segment are pro video makers rather than enthusiasts like us at DPR).
