1. Rinnegan
Compared to the normal and even the Mangekyo Sharingan (not the Eternal), the Rinnegan wins by a huge margin. Just mastering the Rinnegan gives the wearer immense power, that of the Sharingan only develops gradually. Also, most people think (see Akatsuki Ranking Thread) that Nagato was stronger than Itachi. While Nagato made the best of the Rinnegan, Itachi got all sorts of things out of his Mangekyo Sharingan. The Rinnegan is easy the Doujutsu. Also, far, far fewer people have ever had the Rinnegan than the normal or the Mangekyo Sharingan. That makes the Rinnegan seem even more significant.
2. Sharingan
Even the simple Sharingan can be very powerful and has many advantages - Orochimaru has been after him for a lifetime. Enhances all types of jutsu enormously. Lets copy ninjutsu, fend off / reinforce genjutsu and benefit greatly in taijutsu The Mangekyo Sharingan offers a very powerful ninjutsu (Amaterasu) against which 80% of the known ninja would simply burn down, probably the strongest of all genjutsu (Tsukuyomi) and Susanoo that can be released in combat, the power of which varies depending on the initiator and can be huge.
3. Byakugan
Not that the byakugan is weak, but it's becoming more and more of a standard eye jutsu. Even ninja from Kirigakure have some now and then. There are immense advantages in hand-to-hand combat, but Juuken users find it very difficult in ranged combat. So even the fighting style that Byakugan enables has disadvantages. If Byakugan users were to learn any skills besides juuken that would benefit from Byakugan, I would think twice, but so ... well.

You have to say that Neji and now also Hinata have overcome this weakness in distance with Hakke Kūshō. Nen Hyuuga who would mix his clanjutsu with his element would be great, you have to imagine a Katon: Hakke Kūshō.
