Great compliment to the Viva Pro.
I've been playing the original Viva pro 16mm a few months and have enjoyed it a lot. Received the gen 2 a few days ago and although a little different I really like it as well. My impression is that the gen 2 has a tad more power and spin while the original is a little quicker at the kitchen line. Both have great control. To sum up I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
