Shure WL183 and PCM-D50

Hello all. I have another question for the list as I try to narrow my
choices for PIP powered omni capsules. Still waiting to hear if the
Prime EM-158 is the same as the Bedford Technical Bi-158's....
Anyway, as far as the Shure goes from what I gather it needs a bit
more PIP voltage than some of the recorders supply. I very much would
like to avoid a separate battery supply if I can help it. The specs
on the Sony PCM-D50 recorder has this to say in regards to external
Microphone Input (stereo mini jack):
Input impedance: 22k, rated input level: 2.5mV, minimum input level:
Subject: 7mV. Supports external mic plug-in power.
I know that the Shure's might need more power than the PIP circuits
in the Sony MZ-R37's. I wasn't sure if I'd have this same problem
with the flash-based PCM-D50.
Any opinions/tips/suggestions would be much appreciated.
