The Z5 is only abit wider than the Z1 from my experience, Ive found the low light a lot better though!

I agree that although the Z5 is wide it isn't wide enough to be considered as a wide angle lens, I got the Panasonic TZ7 which has a 25mm equiv wide lens, now that IS wide!

Ed I hopefully will be able to get the wireless mics before i need them. I would like to know what everyone thinks is about the Sennhieser EW100 ENG kit is it worth the extra 100 for the XLR adapter plug over the EW112p kit?

EW100 ENG kit has an extra transmitter - Sennheiser UK - ew 100-ENG G2

Yeah but Im wondering if its people think its worth having the extra transmitter as well. I know you could always plug a mic into the ew112 transmitter so wouldn't be a huge problem, but then again I could see times when the XLR transmitter plug could come in handy.

I use the plug-in transmitter for weddings - works great near the speakers on the reception table.

It's a good rig. Very well made.

It pays to just buy the kit with both of them. Trust me, if you're going to keep doing this, you'll use both. Every job you do is a new adventure and you may as well be prepared.
