Digital Forensics Tools/Distros

I was researching digital forensics distros/platforms and came across several. Which ones are the best to use? most recognized? I know there are many tools for different forensics analysis but I am talking about the overall distros.

Digital Forensics Framework
Sleuth kit +Autopsy
SANS SIFT (this is distro is based on SANS courses)
EnCase (has certification) Tools require license/fees
AccessData FTK (has certification)
Kali Linux (distro has autopsy, Digital Forensics Framework, volatility, and others)

Aside from EnCase, most of these tools are freeware. So whats the verdict here? people use one? two? multiples of these tools during investigations? Any recommended books or courses?

2019 Goals:
Courses: Real World Red Team Attacks- AppSec Cali 2019, SANS Security West SEC660, SANS Network Security FOR508,
Certs: GCED, GCIA (in progress), GCIH, GXPN, GCFA
