AKG Perception 220

I've seen one of these on sale for £100.

I've never used one before, are they worth buying? For that price anyway?

Bear in mind that my budget doesn't really stretch much further than that, and I already have SM57/58s.

It's a reasonable condenser mic, but that's not a particularly good price for it as a spec buy, especially if it does not include the shock mount.

What would you use it for? Although AKG pitch the 220 as a stage or studio mic, I would think its stage uses would be fairly limited to things like guitar cabinet miking.

I would save your pennies until you come across a real bargain, or you find the "must have" mic to fulfill a particular need.
