Default Round/Oval Hole Archtop Tone

In general, can someone describe what tonal difference one might expect between an F hole versus a round or oval hole archtop? I have been thinking of adding an archtop to my collection of flat tops and I have not had the chance to try out anything other than the typical F hole guitar.

I am primarily a fingerstyle blues player and I just want a different tone and feel from my usual guitars. I also know that finding round/oval hole archtops is not an easy task! I see used Eastmans from time to time but these things are rare birds. Any thoughts or advise on what I might expect?
