Well, first off I'm not a prefessional keyboardist, but nonetheless I'd like to have a VA synth so that I can pratice analog techniques, record some riffs, and play it on stage every now and then. I don't know much about these two keyboards, but I played the SH-201 yesterday and I quite liked it, but again, I can't compare it to the JP-8000 since I've never used it. Secondly, I'm looking for a synth around $500.

I have not personally had the chance to play around with one, but a lot of folks on this board like them (as a search should reveal).
