My opinion, FWIW.

I used a Cs-5 as well after a fellow (film) mixer raved about it.
Didn't like it to be honest and was far too noisy for nature, but like emil=
 said, in the right conditions (urban atmos) it can sound great.

Currently I own 4x sanken lav mics for my lectrosonics radios and my main b=
oom mic is a CS-1 shotgun for tv. Gotta say, the cs-1 sounds great through =
a SQN4s mixer and have had many positive responses from audio post about th=
e quality of the sound. I prefer it to a mkh60 or 50, much more natural sou=
nding. Whatever that means.

Sold my Neumann RSM191 stereo shotgun a few years ago as It was too noisy a=
s well. (M-16/S-19dBa) As much as I loved the warm sound of it..
Now using a MKH40/30 m/s pair and even that is too noisy in some locations,=
 maybe I'm just expecting too much from my mics?
Thinking about getting some AT4022's now after reading about and hearing so=
me great recordings from this group..
