3 Season, 2 Person Tent - MSR vs Big Agnes

I am looking to purchase a good 2 man tent that will fit 2 plus a bit of gear. After some research I feel like I have narrowed it down to these 2 options:

MSR Elixir 3 vs Big Agnes Copper Spur UL3.

Both offer 2 vestibules and 2 points of entry, which I really like. Budget always come into play, I can get the MSR for a really good price (and the footprint is included), which leaves more room to purchase things like pad and bag.

Can anyone provide some real world feedback of experience with either or both? Let me know what you think!
