Anyone used Sennheiser EW-122 g2?

Hey - I bought two of these used. They have cardioid, rather than omni-directional, lav mics. Would these be suitable for 2-person dialogue in an outdoor setting? This is for a short film.
Do I need to upgrade these mics, any suggestions?

You might want to upgrade the mics themselves. Cardioid lavs make it more difficult for the talent to stay "on-mic" as they move about and turn their heads etc and omnis generally work out better. Adding something like the Countryman B3 or B6 is worth considering.

Thanks

I've looked at the Countryman and the AT stuff. $$, I guess I'll see how the cardiod work out and rent a better mic to compare. Thanks again.
