Got mine. The shoe mount is nice, as is the feature
"scan for free channels".

Ok, how about some words on real-world experience from owners of the new Senn G2 (especially regarding drop-outs in urban areas)?

Having never personally used a wireless system before, on-line research has reached its limit. It's crunch time and I'm ready to buy either an A-T u101 or the new Senn G2 kit, EW 100 ENG. I would otherwise go with the Senn (if that particular kit can be found yet), but wondering if anyone has experienced any drop-out problems since the Senn isn't diversity?

FYI for others who may be interested...
here's the link to the G2 100 series owner's manual (English):

and the web page for the A-T u100 series:

I'm going to show my ignorance here, so no flames please:

Will either of these systems (or are there other systems) that will simultaneously pick up two different lav/bodypacks with one camera mounted receiver unit?

Mike,

Is there no market for two separate lav inputs going to the same cam via wireless? Or would it just be cost prohibitive to do that?

There have been some very low-cost systems that did this, but nothing that you could use for real quality work.
Manufacturers have chosen to keep the units separated for camera-mount applications at the price level we've been talking about.

I just received my G2-ENG kit from B&H and preliminary tests seem great.

Just an FYI.
