I think you are describing very well the characteristics of both mics. To be honest, you are comparing the two extremes in cardioids, at least in my opinion - I love the MK4 in the studio close to instruments and in certain cases as a support in an acoustical setting. As a mains or even e.g. a choir support, it simply sounds too muffled. The 4011, on the other hand, really excels as support, especially on woodwinds and anything further back in an ensemble, whilst I do not like it very much in the studio.
