A recent file system benchmark article in the Linux gazette by Justin Piszcz is a follow up to his first article where he tested EXT2, EXT3, JFS, ReiserFS3, and XFS using a 2.4.26 kernel. His latest review uses the same hardware, Kernel 2.6.14 and adds ReiserFS4. While, some have noted his hardware is dated and that some filesystems are designed for todays faster hardware, the comparison is valuable data point none the less. The short story, he likes XFS.
