I forgot to mention the Line Audio CM-3, i like them for lots of stuff.
I'm curious about their omnis as well. Dirt cheap when i bought mine.

Here's a review I did recently, comparing the Oktava MK-012 to a Shure SM81 and Earthworks OM1. I realize that these mics are inherently different designs in regards to polar patterns...but it might shed some light on how it compares to other SDC mics of a similar price point. There are comparison audio samples for a mono drum overhead and acoustic guitar. I hope it's helpful!

The Telefunken m60 and m260 seem great from everything I've heard. They seem to hit the sweet spot for me between neutral and hyped. Don't have them though. I love my marik modded c1000s enough that I've managed not to pull the trigger yet on the m60s.
