Opteka VM-200 Video Condenser Stereo Shotgun Microphone for Digital SLR Cameras & Camcorders

Opteka VM-200 Video Condenser Stereo Shotgun Microphone for Digital SLR Cameras & Camcorders. In my never ending quest to get great audio onto iPhone video Ive found the VM-200 from Opteka. Its a Directional XY Stereo Shotgun Mic and it might be very interesting to see how the Fostex AR4i copes with this baby. I might slap together a PS mockup to see exactly how bizarre this might look. According to the Opteka website the RRP will be $299 though they have a $160 discount on the site at the minute -that brings it in line with the RODE Video Mic Pro and the Sennhesiser MKE400. Its probably worth nothing that RODE have recently started shipping the RODE Stereo Video Mic Pro which has pretty much the same feature set. Which would you buy?
