I have an Oktava MK-319 and an AKG C3000 as well as a Shure SM-57. Can't afford the Neumann. All of the mics sound good but they all edge out the SM-57 by just a tad. I also have an Oktava MK-219. Oktava mics are great however, I do find them to be inconsistent in sound. NOT BAD, just different from mic to mic. If you can buy a matched pair that's probably the best. My 2 MK-219's sound good but different from each other. My Okatava MK-319 sounds best for guitar amps and drums. I've tried it on vocals and this particular mic wasn't as good as my AKG C3000. I record with Sudio One software and run vocal mics through a Rane DMS-22 mic pre. I enjoyed listening to your evaluations. They were very helpful.
