Good question, I sort of like distance between singer/mic regardless because the sound has a chance to develop some and is more unwieldy and less balanced for me when too close (12" is getting close for me). The biggest change I've ever made was getting my room in good enough shape to allow such creative micing choices, before that, all micing was defensive, not creative... but that didn't change whether I used condenser or dynamic.
If it requires a null test to find it, it is by definition minuscule.
