Neumann tlm 102 vs kms 105

Hi, this is my first post on here - not totally convinced it's in the correct place so apologies in advance!

I'm just about to invest in my first decent mic. Have listened to lots of online reviews and searched on here. My two favourites are: Neumann tlm 102 and kms 105.

I get that one is a handheld, more suited to use on stage. I'll only be using it for audio book / podcast recordings, but have always felt more comfortable using a handheld (even though I'll obviously be isolating it on a stand), vs the "wedge shape" of the 102.

Given I have a fairly nasally, mid-higher range in my voice, I'd welcome thoughts on which would suit my needs better?

Wondering whether the 102 would be a better investment long term, and also allow me to "perfect" my proximity effect technique as I gain experience?

Thanks in advance for your help.
