I was in the same boat a few years ago. Was using an Audio Technica 897 for years, but took too much time matching prod dx. So researched and was %99 set on the 416, till I found out about the MKH 40. I record adr in the main mix room and it has a slight natural reverb that the the 416 picks up. I rented both the 416 and the 40 on an ADR session and A/B'd them. The 40 won, it was very dry, rejected the rear verb of the room and has a wider cone (thus way more forgiving than the 416 narrow cone) than the 416 for when the actors move their heads out of the mics zone.
