I'm a fan of cantis too, set 'em up right and they work well and they also look right.
These for instance are works of art:

I had a Torus frame and built it up including SS7 levers with 987 cantis,hand on heart you could keep yer cnc high end exotica,that DiaCompe set up was just spot on.I dont think anyone came close to matching their performance and reliability.

986, Ritchey or Shimano, all I've ever used. 95% Shimano even in the 80's.
