Sennheiser MKH 70 need feedback please


I have purchased recently Sennheiser MKH 70 as full kit, second hand. The mic seemed to be in perfect cosmetic order and once plugged it does work. So I started using it on some tv series I am recording, but I felt that it is not directional as it is expected to be. So I tested it along with Rode NTG 3 and it turned out that NTG 3 has much more noise rejection off axis and sounds fuller on the low end. I have used MKH 816 before and I am familiar with it's directivity, but this 70 I got I feel is nowhere close to it. The question is, is there a possibility that there is a fault within the mic even though it is working and still sounds crisp and detailed? Thanks!

did you ever figure out what was going on with your MKH 70?
