What ot upgrade Sennheiser ME66 to?


I have been using a Sennheiser ME66 for over 10 years. Recently I go to do a side by side comparison of a 416 and what really impressed me was as it has a tighter field you don't get so much echo when recording inside so you get a less boomy sound.

Thing is its a bit beyond my price range and I have heard very good things about the Rode NTG-3,would this be a worthwhile upgrade.

I generally use the mic for interviews, either mounted on the camera or with someone holding it with a pistol grip and Rycote Softie (I have thought of getting a blimp but I have never had wind noise problems whti this setup).

So is the NTG-3 the best option or are there others I should consider. If there are other microphones I should consider it would be good to have an house of sound quality and how tight the field it.

Currently I have a phantom power and battery back-end for the ME66. The phantom power is essential and the battery operation a nice to have.
