I use the DCS-7050S-52-F.  This is because I get good routed features to meet my use-case, and the cost per SFP port was right.  I’m purchasing them used, so my price per 1G port (that can also do 10G to uplink/infrastructure) is comparable to the per-port price of other BCM based SFP switches, and the software quality is much much higher.  I don’t need 10’s of these either, so my use case is perhaps unique.

I really need some basic routing support, DHCP relay w/ circuit id, etc.

Ping me offline if you want more details about my use-case.  Once I have a few more things sorted, expect a full nanog talk about my problem & solution.
