Herb, you will be doing a lot more than cutting dovetails with your router. Why not plan ahead and go with a combo kit? I have used many routers and prefer my Bosch 1617 over the rest. You are the one who will be using the router so get both of your choices in your hands and work the controls. One will feel better to you, and being confortable with your router is the most important thing.
