CCM8 vs MK8+CMC6

for now my mic collection is basically limited to a cmit5 ..
and after I rent a ccm8 to combine a ms with CMIT for a job I get in love with the sound.. so I wanna buy one, mostly for booming but sometimes on tripod.
my mic wishlist in long term is in constant changing, but consists in: 2x cmc6; cmcxt(for sfx downing high sample rate purpose) mk41 2x mk4 and a schoeps fig.8 and sadly will be a slowly acquisition.. I need to evolve in other gear..

but the point of this question is Should I buy a CCM8 or a mk8 with cmc6??

I know it's personal decision but maybe you can highlight some pros and cons versus one another that I didn't know..

1.very practical and lightweight for booming.

1. after I can buy 1x cmc6 with 2x mk4 instead of a stereo kit 2x cmc6 with 2x mk4.
2. in future if I buy a cmcxt to use it with a mk4 or mk41 I could buy another cmcxt to use with mk8 and make a ms with high frequencies..

1. not so practical and lightweight as CCM8, and every weight plus gets heavier with time when booming.

Basically the pros of MK8 are related with future acquisition, and as I said earlier my wishlist is always in constant changing, mostly the priorities.. ( I really don't know if I really will buy a cmctx.. and if I buy it, if it's make sense to use a cmcxt for MS.. or how should result if I use cmcxt in a MS but only on Mid mic ( ex: cmcxt+mk4or41 with ccm8)

sorry I end up having several questions in this doubt.

Do you have any experience with CMCxt? and CMCxt in MS?

Do you have a MK8? why didn't you buy a CCM8? or Do you have a CCM8? any regrets?

Thank you in advance for any help.

They sound the same -- like a Schoeps mk8 capsule. So the difference is just one of logistics. No one can tell you which "system" will work best for you; you are the only one who can make that decision.
