I purchased this mic in a kit that came with a Sennheiser wind muff but haven't used the muff yet so my comments just pertain to the mic.
Used this Sennheiser MKE 600 mic once so far on a small film shoot. Mounted it on a boom pole and plugged in a Sennheiser XLR wireless transmitter to the end of the mic. Mounted the receiver on the Canon 60D and recorded sound directly to the camera. After the first take I pulled the card out and plugged it into the computer to see how the mic sounded. Wow! Was really impressed! Crystal clear dialog with no echoey room sound. Can't imagine a mic costing hundreds or thousands more sounding any better. (However, I haven't used any of those mics either.) I would highly recommend this mic. That wireless transmitter is heavy though so you will need a really strong shock mount if you plan on using the mic with a plug in wireless unit.

Replaced a RODE NTG-2 with this - so much better.
Deeper frequency response, lower noise floor.

I run it into a Zoom H1 with a balanced adapter cable. Sounds TERRIFIC.
Internal battery has lasted over 50 hours of shooting so far.

Audio is generally the last thought of most people but man for 400 bucks this mic is worth every penny. Nice warm sound great rear rejection. Can go as an on camera mic or a shot gun if you are looking for a solid mic look no further.

Love the clean and clear sound. A good product for filmmakers. I have several mics and this has become my most used one.

Very good for interviews inside, I have used it twice in office type setups both for masculine as female voices at about 3 feet distance with outstanding results. Recorded direct to Nikon D800 in one instance and to Fostex FR2LE in the second. Signal with both recording modes was very acceptable. It is a super-cardioid/lobar mic wich can be used either with phantom or 1.5v battery. Sound is excelent.

I liked this shot gun mic! It is very solid and feels professional indeed (an entry level, but very, very respectable). I actually was interested in a less expensive shotgun mic at first, but ended up getting Sennheiser MKE 600 and Sony PCM M10 portable recorder. I was able to compare Sennheiser with several other microphones side by side when keeping the gain constant, and I used 2 different recording devices - Sony recorder and Nikon digital camera.
Please check my video review on YouTube to listen to Sennheiser MKE 600 mic in comparison with some other mics (Please search for "Microphones compared: Sennheiser MKE 600, Bronstein BRN-900, BRN-400, Sony PCM M10, Nikon D7000" on YouTube or follow the link in the comment below for this review). This test was designed to compare the ability of the microphones to record a distant (or quiet) misic. I intentionally placed the mics fairly far amd compensated by increasing the gain on the Sony recorder, so the noise level relative to signal is higher compared to when speaking directly to mics.

Of these microphones, I liked PCM M10 onboard omnidirectional stereo mics for the high sensitivity, very low self noise and fuller, crisper sound (but it records every ambient noise), and I also liked the MKE 600 shotgun that can help isolate the sound that is natural, loud enough and has a relatively low background hiss. I used this Sennheiser mic with both 48V phantom power from a Mackie mixer and 2 AA batteries (required an XLR to 3.5mm adaptor). The performance was comparable (it is supposed to be slightly better with phantom power, according to the specs). It is a real boon to use AA batteries for such a mic, as I can use it with my Sony recorder or plug directly into digital camera. In addition, the mic comes with a nice pouch.

Very impressed. I use as an overhead/fixed boom on a stand with boompole, for sitdown for interviews. Matches well enough with my Senn 416, and at a fraction of the cost. Quality sound, and quality off-axis rejection.

I read that there might be handling noise with this shotgun, but I haven't tested this out in the field, and I don't plan to be be doing any run and gun booming with this. Could be fine, I just haven't tested it like that.

Very pleased for my purposes

Exceeded my expectations! Used this mic on about 3 projects now, and the performance has been fantastic. Has a tight pick up pattern, great for isolating your subject. At a price around $300 you can't beat the performance. The next microphones that are a step up from this one are gonna be pushing the $1,000 range. If you can afford that, great, if not, this mic will not disappoint.
