G2 lapel mic advise

I am about to order a Sennheiser G2 100 Series Wireless System. They are available with the ME4 Microphone or the ME2. For a standard indoor interview as in a hotel room, which microphone would be more appropriate?

Well...the ME4 is a cardiod (unidirectional) and the ME2 is an omni. Are there more than one mic being used? If so, and separation is an issue, I'd be using the ME4. Omni's are more common, but I'm one of those not being a fan of omni's unless you don't have a lot of control over the situation, and then omni's are great for quick sound capture, but they also give you more room sound, and more "other" sound from things going on around you. Less time needed to set up an omni, but you'll *generally* get better results with a unidirectional.

ME4 sounds good

Thanks, I appreciate the advice. You brought up a good question about are there more than one person to record. The answer is yes. They will be sitting opposite each other in an interview process. I plan on having two Canon GL2, a few soft boxes and the wireless mics on one of the GL2's. The other could use the onboard mic or I could use a ME66 I have.

I was looking at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart&A=details&Q=&sku=324273&is=REG.

I assume this is only enough gear to record one person. What would be required to record both both sides of an interview? Are there more appropriate wireless kits? Or do you think with the two GL2's that I will have will be enough? Forgive me for silly questions but I am a total green horn.
