Currently I'm using a FSA gossamer crankset on my cross bike with BSA bracket. Now I'm looking for something lighter, this is my shortlist now:

- Rotor 3d with steel axle
- FSA SL-K light
- Easton ec90

I know of the issues with the Easton crank but as the price is really low now (and I think warranty isn't an issue) I'm considering these as well. On the other hand I like the Rotor cranks for being metal (feels a bit saver to me). I dislike the FSA for not being compatible with Shimano BB cups as I have some in store.

What would be your pick?

I have no recommendation on your choice. I have the Gossamer cranks too on my cross bike and I bought a Omni Racer ceramic bearing bottom bracket ( Shimano) and while it fit very tight, I did cease the axle, a couple of very light taps with a plastic mallet and it went right in. The Omni Racer works great too!

My pick would be something from Shimano or SRAM. I don't care what they weigh, those are the best cranks.
