Thanks, Max. I really appreciate the advice. I'm considering expanding the instrumental work I regularly do to vocal-based stuff, and I've been on an exhaustive search (actually seems more like a religious quest at times!) for vocal mics. With about $1k budget, I've started to think that instead of getting one mic, I should get a few lower-priced reputable mics. Actually my little list includes a few of those you mentioned--the 4047, SM7 and 414b-uls. They seem like a decent starting point for assorted vocalists. Of course, from time to time I read about something that makes me reconsider. As an Elliott Smith fan, that Langevin was certainly one of those things!

Anyway, many thanks.
Good luck on the mic hunt.
