Need Opinion on Sennheiser EW 112 G3s radio mics

I'm a DP in a quandry. Due to the digital switch over my 2 perfectly good Lectrosonic radio mics are obsolete and the grace period ends June 15. So I need 2 new ones but to go with Lectrosonics is $4600! This is for UCR401 & UM400As. As a DP providing a package I don't make money on audio, it's expected I have 2 radios. Yet the new Sennheiser EW 112 G3 are $3500 less! I will be using my Tram lavs with whatever I buy.

Obviously there’s the recession but what is worse is that the competition to us DPs has gotten cheaper and the clients’ budgets have gone down. Lectro, like Anton Bauer and Sachtler have always been the standard of excellence.

I specialize in non-fiction TV (lots of talking heads & b-roll) as in Discovery, History Channel, etc., High End Corporate and Documentaries. If the audio must be the highest quality, as in dramatic jobs, then I rent the soundman’s package. So knowing this, do any of you have experience with the Sennheiser EW 112 G3s? Thanks.

I've used them on shoots with no problems. But it's always been in benign locations - not in areas with lots of possible interference. Sennheiser has a link to the FCC frequency database on their site so you can find vacant or little used frequencies. It searches the region of the zip code you enter.

Thanks! In downtown Chicago there is a LOT of interference.
