thinking about buying some backup mics, for more dangerous situations, and other experiments...i have two options either matched pair of rodes nt5, or oktavas mk012...i'm a little bit on aktava side, because oktava set has 6 capsules, but i need better sounding mics, and i never used any of these :)
The discussion going on in these topics should be taken with a grain of salt because you don't know how biased or knowledgeable someone might be, but there are a few example recordings (some even comparing it to the oktavas) buried amidst the brand-bashing and -praising.
As always, the best thing you can do is to try them out :)

Check out the Line Audio CM3 mics. They are incredible.
A matched pair of the Oktava MK-012 is a good buy. These mics sound far better than the price tag would suggest. They are a little on the "dark" side, but well worth owning a pair of these. I have recorded outside sfx with these......fireworks, crowds etc, as well as music in the studio on guitars and other instruments.
Michael Joly at oktavamod.com apparently does mods on them that makes them sound even better, though I haven't tried his modded mics myself. There seems to be plenty of good feedback around regarding the mics he has done.
