Yes I still lean towards the ESV as preferred. However my love and respect for the KJV is on the rise.Grant, I am someone who personally believes the text underlying the ESV is the best text (overall). If you want a substantial defense of this view, Dr James Price's free e-book on textual issues is one of the best http://www.jamesdprice.com/images/33_King_James_Onlyism.pdf
The Reformed Scholar, Dr Edward Hills, has one of the best defences of the Received Text. Dr Price critiques him in the e-book I mentioned above.
