Maybe upgrading brake calipers. Any input?

Hey guys, I have a base 2015 1299. Right now I have Ferodo front and rear brake pads. My 1299 is mostly a commuter bike to work when the weather and temps in NYC/Long Island dont go below 40 degrees. And I alternate between my S1000R, S1000RR and Harley. But I do track the 1299 at least 10-14 times a year. The suspension is stock on the bike at the moment but I am thinking of upgrading the rear shock to either a Ohlins or Bitubo. And either upgrading to Ohlins drop ins, gp suspension drop ins or Bitubo drop ins. Or maybe even upgrade fully to ohlins front forks. If not for my brothers discount I wouldnt even think about it.

Anyway back to the brakes. Can anyone let me know the main difference between the 100mm brembo radial 30/34 brake calipers and the brembo radial GP4-RX brake calipers? And if I can keep my brake master cylinder with the 30/34 calipers. If Im not mistaken I cant keep my brake master cylinder with the GP4RX calipers. And also would I need to change out my rotors.
