I'll pile on in the "buy one and see how you like it" camp. There are some good reasons to have a mortise chisel on hand even if you cut mortises with machines. The heft of a mortise chisel makes it ideal to pare a little bit off the end of a mortise made with a hollow chisel machine, or to square the corners of a router cut mortise.
