There have been other more viable and capable shinobi (i.e. Itachi, Kakashi, Orochimaru, Jiraiya, and Minato), but for "pure" power, none will rival these six.
So as far as the Uchiha and Senju are concerned, as wholes, I would put them at par with the Nara clan and Hyuugas. Because lets be honest, for whatever reason, Kishi didn't want to delve into the Uzumakis, and based on what knowledge we do have of them, as a clan, they apparently seemed to be the most formidable, so much, that they were annihilated. Did they have sole people who were of the power level of Hashirama, Tobirama, Madara, or Izuna? More than likely not.
I gotta side with KYF on one isntance. I don't remember where Kishi stated that Nagato was both Senju and Uzumaki, just Uzumaki. I could be wrong, but evidence will prove one way or the other.
Num is ignoring the FACT that kihsi made Uzumaki=senju through an ass pull...
Uzumaki's were just supposed to be related to the senju... However, it turned out that they were related through the younger son of the sage, thus both being the same bloodline (senju) were just the same clan/bloodline/power in two different clans...
KNOWLEDGE TO LIVE BY...
No matter how POWERFUL/STRONG you are. If you cannot CATCH your Enemy, all you POWER/STRENGTH is no more USEFUL then a squirt gun....
And if You cannot possibly TRACK/REACT to your enemies attacks to Defend yourself, then how can you possibly stop him from DEFEATING you at WILL...
MINATO "KYF" NAMIKAZE.
People live relying on they're Knowledge and Perception, and thus are bound to them.....
Those Boundaries are what they tend to accept as "Reality".....
However..... Knowledge and Perception are both ambiguous....
so "Reality" could be nothing more....
then an illusion....
