Ben:

All of the above - you share my taste in commentaries. Big Smile Serious, although I went for Anchor first, if there were no other considerations I'd recommend Hermeneia - it is the more consistent in quality across the various volumes than Anchor. I've only used one volume of the ICC so I can't really speak to it yet.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

If I had the money for these sets I would go for Hermeneia then Anchor then ICC (mainly because this can be the most dated of the 3 series).

In terms of evaluating individual commentaries consider bestcommentaries.com

I concur with Kevin.

I added the Continental commentaries today, it will be interesting to get into them.

I've always liked the Genesis and Psalm volumes from that series.
