i have used shotgun ms microphones (in particular the
schoeps) and have never felt happy with the image. the
centre image has almost no link to the side signal.

i think if one wants to use a shotgun microphone at
all, use a pair of them angled a lot less than the 90
degrees you would use for a pair of cardioids.
