I'm late to the party but here are my 2 cents.

In general I have liked all the Bonds. Connery was definitely the "coolest" Bond. I still don't know if that is because he was the first, or Connery just is that much cooler than all the other actors.
I only saw OHMSS once and aside from the car assassination scene, I can't remember anything about that one. I think I know what movie to rent tonight...ha.
I grew up with Moore so he gets extra love for the memories. I do think some of his movies and/or lines were getting way too campy. I never really like Moonraker for some reason.
I liked Dalton and was surprised when his run ended so soon. I know he was very focussed to put some more emotional feeling into his Bond so I thought that was a good choice.
Brosnan was ok and before he was cast, I thought he'd make a perfect Bond. He just got stuck with a couple underperforming plots/scripts. He also was hindered being in the time when some CGI was being experimented with and it was awful.
Craig's Bond has been the most physically capable but has felt the least Bond-like to me.
I think Luke Evans could make a good Bond. I saw him all dressed up in a 3 piece suit and thought I was seeing James Bond in the flesh. Weird, I know.
While I, believe the competition is getting tougher with other bond-like movies franchises. James Bond is still a unique character and no one is as cool as this guy....no one.
