new LDC to complement U195

Since it seems to be "mic-week" here at GS - which I love! - I'd though I drop in my little search.

I've been using a U195 as my main LDC for vocal tracking (and other things) and allthough it is not seen here as a true "high-end" mic, I still like it a lot.

However, it doesn't allways sit nicely in the mix and I am always fighting sibilance a bit. It's under control, but still allways a bit of an issue. Furthermore, the mic doesn't satisfy me in the depth department as well as in the "extremen sharp centre placement" department.

So, I am looking to ad a nice LDC mic that will be a good compliment and preferably preferably in most cases over the U195.

Which mic would you recommend. Since I am in Europe, I can get good prices on for example a Brauner VM1 or VMX.
Not sure if the Peluso of Pearlman mics really are a step up?

Any opinions?
Budget ~Euro 3-3.5k
