I think a lot would depend on the price range as well. If price doesn't matter, then there are a lot of options.

To me it's ironic that the 3 top manufacturers of surveillance cameras vary so greatly in terms of price and country of origin. For example, Flir mostly sells very high end thermal image cameras used in military applications but also has consumer products and is a U.S. company where Dahua and Hikvision are in China and represent the lower end of the market in terms of price.

Then the question would be who makes the best camera, and like you said, depends on the budget, for example, Avigilon has a full frame sensor on it's top end 29MP camera and you put a Canon 35mm lens on it and when all is said and done, you could be into it for close to $10K but then it has a very low frame rate so may not fit everyone's use case, hence how do you define best, not only in costs, but by use case.

Then how do you say a brand is best like Axis when they make so many different products in so many different price ranges. I would say they make some products better than others and other products that are not that good, like any manufacturer.
