There is this thing called the proximity effect on directional mics, what happens is that the bass may rise as the working distance changes. Also any movements off center will cause some colorations in directional mic's. I use an omni when the performer is very active and moves around alot, I keep him close, but if there is movement then it won't change in bass level or color the sound. I also use an omni when bleed from other sounds is uncontrolable, like drums in a small room with electric guitar, I may use omni's as overheads in that case. Then the off axis colorations won't be to bad.
