50-240GT is $1600 and appears to have limited availability.

Craftsman 22116 is $950 which is more then a Delta 36-715 (closest comparable fence)

Grizzly G0661 is a contractors saw with table mounted trunnions at nearly $900

Grizzly G0715P looks nice and seems to have a decent price at $850. Currently brand new and I will keep an eye on reviews. This is a contender for the Delta.

The Jet Pro Shop saws are nice but at the same budge Im looking for something with a full cabinet base. If all options equal this is one possible determining factor.

Craftsman 22124 is completely discontinued at this time.

So, the Delta 36-71X (5,6,7) has been around awhile. Parts and accessories are widely available. The saw is easily available from multiple vendors. There are many reviews and most are very positive.

Honestly the Grizzly is the main contender. As I read more the Jet Pro Shop may, but the fact that its not a cabinet is a turn off.
