I am slowly building up my location kit, thinking about getting lavaliers now. Since I don't want to throw away money on equipment I will have to change, but at the same time I cannot afford Lectros yet, I was thinking about getting either Sony UWP D-16 or Sennheiser G3, to be later used as camera scratch audio or director feed.
If I look on paper between these two, the Sony UWP comes out as a strong winner, being true diversity and a headphone output. From tests I saw, the range and clarity of signal transmission are clearly superior in the Sony, however the Sennheiser stock mics sound slightly better. Not a big deal, as I have in mind to get Sanken anyway.
Still, in all the semi-professional works I did, I still have to find a pair of Sonys, with everyone using G3 ( I am based in Germany). Is there any particular reason for it that I am missing?
Thanks for any insights on this matter! (Or any other matter I mentioned, I value any kind of opinion!)
