Using MKH-60 with a MKH-70

We just shot a movie.

For dialog, we used a Sennheiser MKH-60 with Rycote setup on a boom pole.

We now have a MKH-70, with the appropriate Rycote and boom pole.

Is it acceptable to record one actor using the MKH-60 and another actor in the same scene with the MKH-70? Or would it be better using two MKH-60's.

Before we purchaed the MKH-70, we consulted with Sennheiser and they said both mikes will sound the same for close up dialog.

We will be testing this before our next shoot. However, I wanted to learn from the experiences of others.

Thanks for your assistance.

I think Sennheiser has it right. Remember, since people sound
different, the mic discrepancy shouldn't be too obvious.
NOW, OTOH, if you had a MKH-60 and a Shure SM-57,
that wouldn't work as they sound radically different.

Dear Jacques,

I appreciate you taking the time to confirm Sennheiser's advice. I also appreciate you sharing your experience.

Thank you.
